[Diagnosis] What Was Your Sleep Study AHI?
#31
Current typical chart
   

Previous machine  (my mask was not off most of the time)
   


At the time I was pushing 18-20  and throwing frequent AHI of 10+ at the time I became active here (end of 15) and with a failing Intelepap auto cpap.

You identified very bad leaks in my charts.

Printed multiple dailys showing both bad and good and the Dr. agreed to more pressure.  Rx was 25/21 in S mode, said we may reduce it later.  I'm curious what she will say when I see her next month.

Relatively low AHI of 10.6 (And, BTW, when they called to tell me my results, they told me it was 9. I'm not sure what was up with that.) But lowest O2 saturation was 72. That freaked me out a lot more than the AHI.

"Medicare does not accept RDI for diagnosis."

I thought RDI and AHI were the same thing. Why would accepting RDI mean that more women would qualify for machines?
