Graph History

RE: Graph History
After many changes and tweaks, with this board's help I think I'm pretty well where my doctor wants be to be.

I've attached lasts night's charts.  Did not get my full 5 hours but felt really rested this morning.  Only issue is that my nose gets somewhat stuffed up and it wakes me up.  I take the mask off and fall back asleep before I can get it back on after my nose clears.  Not sure what to do about that.

Any ideas?

I want to thank everyone who help me get this done.  Job well done...

RE: Graph History
It looks like you haven’t been able to resolve your high leak rate. Your low AHI reading may not be accurate with that high of a leak rate.

First...resolve the leak rate. Are you using a soft cervical collar?

Second...it will become habit if you take your mask off and fall back asleep without it. It appears you aren’t getting enough sleep.

Third...there’s much you can do for nasal congestion. There are many threads on this subject.
Try using a saline nasal rinse daily. If that doesn’t help, talk to your doctor and see if he would prescribe a nasal spray for short term use.

Last night I stayed on the device after waking about 3:15.  

Thanks
