Well back in August 2014 I met a fantastic woman (who I warned ahead of time that I snore before our first sleepover) who suggested I go to a sleep clinic and get checked out. Being a stubborn man I was pushed and pushed, finally went in September 2014. My results were shocking to say the least (101 AHI) and began this journey being a stubborn as a mule, have now eaten some humble pie and thank everyone who has helped me get to this point.
Yesterday I went to my Healthcare company to to pick out my machine and mask, didn't have a great experience as it seemed very shady and "salesy" even though I did extensive research throughout this journey and was prepared. Ended up with the Resmed AirSense 10 Elite with Climate line tubing and the P10 Nasal Pillow mask (which i used in sleep study and was comfortable with). My prescription is set to 10 to which was programed into machine and he set everything else to "Auto" which I am sure may need to be tweaked.
Last night was my first night sleeping with the equipment and i seemed to have slept like a baby, I woke up twice but fell right back asleep. Very impressed with how quiet the machine is, mask felt and fit great so i have no complaints what so ever with that. Woke up this morning and right away wanted to see the AHI which was 4.9. Not over the moon with that but i guess i should be, coming from when i did my first sleep study at 101. Right now i feel amazing and feel like i could run across the country and back as a jogging warm up. I am an extremely active person, love lifting weights working out, the outdoors and i am also hoping this therapy is going to help with my energy. I'm also looking forward to getting that number down and living a happy, healthy life with Cpap. Would like to thank this great board and site for the never ending knowledge and seems to be a place with tons of supportive members.
