Hello all.

I updated my profile with my new equipment and I have three screen shots below from SleepyHead with my first night's data. Please help me understand it, in laymen's terms.

Thanks for the help.

Wow u did well and with a Nano! I couldn't wear my Nano even with a chin strap.
You had a few events but it is rare to have 0 events. Anything below 5 is
Considered normal. What was your AHI on your sleep study?

JohnNJ, everything is good, it is hard to measure one night but a really good start, you want you 95%leak to be below 24lt. You are using an auto machine but it seems to be on a fixed pressure which is fine, just keep at it and stay consistent, well done.

OK, so now I know that events below 5 is normal and 95% leaks should be below 24lt. Anything else?

One night does not a trend make.

However, your first night was exceptional!!! Sleep-well

They are the most important stats, you can look at the graphs to see when things are occurring, the other most important thing isn't to do with the data but how you feel during the day and whether the symptoms you had before you started go, for some people this may take a while.

RE: First Night - Please help me understand the data
What would you specifically like to know? That would help to save time.

Your data looks great. But it is just one night. You want to keep watching the data and look for trends which will show you what is your "normal" ranges. You won't have .85 AHI every night.

Is your machine set in "CPAP" mode or "APAP" mode? It is rare that the max and the 95% are the same amount. The 95% is were the pressure was or lower for 95% of the night. This is more important a number than the average.

Meanwhile, you can go and read these:

Do the numbers in () mean how long the event lasted or something else?

Your data looks really good. Watch it for a week to see the trend.
