First nights numbers please explain
[attachment=1453]This was done in a reclining chair, feet up back about 45 degrees. I have been sleeping better in this chair than in the bed so numbers are probably better than in said bed. Wink

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

Wish my AHI numbers were that low. Coffee

How many hours?

Numbers look great Mark, good job.

There's no reason why they won't stay good when you're in bed. Try to elevate the head a little though.

But kicking back in a comfy chair is a good way to get used to the mask and machine.

Good job.

8

Wife says I am definitely more alive this AM but I do have a new toy so that could be a factor.
Awoke with mouth being pressurized open more than once.
The graphs I find interesting but if I post screen shots will they be readable?

This involved playing with settings based upon how it felt.
I definitely believe in letting "auto" do the driving.

Graphs should be okay, the board shrinks the image but they are clickable for full size. In sleepyhead do an F11 then F12 for full screen shot.

Good job.

I tend to thrash around in the bed and "sleep" prone frequently. Chair mostly prevents that. And far enough away can't hear Her snoring and snorting. Fitted sheets pulled off the corner at my head..... earbuds cord wrapped twice around my neck Rolleyes
I am going to jack up the head of the bed. Any suggestions how how high? Cat went to heaven last month so no danger of sliding of bed and squishing the cat. The littlest dog likes to chew MY stuff-never hers so I may just stay in the chair.

Well I owe the comfy chair to your previous comments after showing wife an so she bought me a Lazyboy XR+
Thanks

"they" say around 4" to 6" but whatever makes you comfortable.

RE: First nights numbers please explain
I don't really know how high my head is when laying down. Never really measured it. I do know that when on my back, I could see my toes were I care to look. So there's that. One of my great pleasures in all of this is being able to sleep on my back or on my side. So strive to be able to do both. Makes for much happier hips and backs in the morning.
