I was that way long before pain MGNT - my blood O2 dropped into the low 60s during my original study without me waking...

Well, that sounds bad.

That is why my dream machine is so important to me. I will not sleep at all without it. CPAP overall has improved my life greatly, and I just wish I had known about this forum much earlier.

I am curious as to why the DME didn't do a complete set up of the machine for you instead of just setting it to the auto mode.

During your sleep study, did they do a titration portion?

Congrats on getting on Medicare and getting your new machine. It has to be a good feeling to have the right machine and an updated version that will give you some important data.

My DME is dumb but compliant. So I don't care that they did not know what to correctly set my machine at as I don't have to fight with them.

I was titrated for an ASV machine. I do not quite get my Doc's script of "15/3/3" - so while waiting to see him next month, I will be pulling data.

Hey Peter I think Vsheline on board here is quite familiar with that machine, and he knows exactly how the settings work and what they do, give him a PM, he is quite good, and he knows his snails. I mean he knows his machines. Big Grin

And when are you going to get that pedal generator??

He and I have been chatting for months about my slightly weird conditions. And he's been a great help to me, including choosing my machine.

They cost way too much for my needs - more than a gas genny costs

Yah he is quite good and very helpful, even at explaining things.

I thought I found you one at like $100 or something, is that a bad price?
