I am using sleepy head and there have been no leaks reported via the software and I sure haven't felt any (except when my nose itches and I really have to scratch it It's amazing how much my nose itches once I put my mask on!!). My oxygen tubing isn't crushed or ripped (first thing I checked!!) and both machines are working just fine.
I am wondering if it has to do with the oxygen port being so far from me if that could cause the desaturations? Nasal cannulas go right up your nose to deliver the oxygen but now at night that oxygen must travel though a lot of tubing to get to me. I am going to try moving the port directly to my mask again and see if that helps, I tried once before but it made it hard to go to sleep being all bulky but if it works maybe that will let me know if a mask with the oxygen port is what I need.
Then again maybe I am still desaturating because I am still having apneas? I was bad and went into my setup to activate the EPR setting since I am still having problems tolerating the pressures. I will be interested in seeing if that helps any tonight with my desaturations or apnea activity. I know with the respironics constant flow I felt like I was constantly suffocating and that has gotten better with the autoset. I know I shouldn't do that but my doctor is over 2 hours away and I am pretty desperate at this point.
Sorry for yet more questions. I am 100% committed to making this therapy work and don’t want to lose that motivation due to frustration.
PS. I did call my doctor’s office and told them I was still desaturating. The nurse is going to talk with the doctor to see if he wants to go ahead with the home saturation study now or give it some more adjustment time.
