HELP reading Sleepyhead
#1
History repeats:

Please tell me what all this means and if I am seeing what I think is a major improvement:

Dang dang dang Lost ground..

Last night I tried to return to sleeping in my own bed. Not good.

The previous two nights were done in my recliner which I got into the habit of sleeping in after my heart surgery.

It is now 5;00 and I will switch back to the recliner and see what happens for the last few hours of sleep.

PS did not sleep long enough to get things working.

Tonight it is back to the recliner.

I fear I will need a hospital bed??!

I am not complaining..well not much, BUT when I first joined I was getting lots of help and support, now I cannot flag down a cab.

I have a couple of new threads running with deeper questions and really need help understanding things and I am not getting any answers/help.

I keep waking up and ripping off my mask as I feel suffocated...

I really need help reading the reports of sleepyhead and help fixing this.

What’s up??

Happens to me a few times a lot of the times it was the hose getting caught and i just panicked

now i just hang it above the headboard on a hook

i see your using the Philips Respironics FitLife i could see how that would make you feel like you feel

Try the mirage-liberty lower profile on the Face

there are
lower profile masks out there
keep looking and good luck with the treatment

I'm not sure what you're asking, Rich.

It seems you need help interpreting your data? And you took your mask off?

First of all, you have to collect data over a period of at least a week for it to be of any help in answering any of the questions you're asking. The data that is meaningful at this point is your leak rate. It's hard to tell from looking at your screen shots if your leak rate is under control. If you're not sure tell us what your leak rate is and we'll see if we can interpret it. SleepyHead may have problems determining accurate unintentional leak rates for your machine so it's probably best if you look at your total leak rate. You can also get EncoreBasic as that should determine your unintentional leak rate accurately.

The issue of mask removal does occur for some people. The best advice I can give you is to wear the mask when you're not sleeping so you can get acclimated to it.

Lots of people have given you lots of advice on these issues. When I go back and look at the responses to your messages I see a lot of it.

When we're sleep-deprived and overwhelmed by the complexities of CPAP therapy it's very stressful.

Try to concentrate on what's going on in your life while you're awake. After all, the only reason we sleep is so that we can enjoy the life we have when we're awake. Our bodies have an amazing capacity to adapt so we have to give ourselves time to adapt to things like CPAP therapy.

Rich, it appears to me that you're getting into very technical and complicated areas of ASV treatment and the issues you've raised are beyond the knowledge level of most sleep apnea forum participants. It's not that your questions are being ignored, but rather many folks, including me, don't know enough about ASV adjustments to offer any sound advice.

Unless we get a member here who is an expert in ASV adjustments, you're likely to get the silence that you've experienced lately. The first questions during your first month of membership here were simple, but these latest issues you're having are much more complex.

Also, your question of "tell me what all this data means" was not very specific. I read that question and couldn't figure out what you were asking. If you want people to respond, your questions need to be more specific in nature. Just a suggestion.

Also, as the weather gets nicer outside, many of our regulars are out enjoying the great outdoors. Happens this time of year in the spring - the forum here gets rather slow. Stay tuned, it will pick up once air conditioner season comes, when folks come back inside to escape the heat and humidity.

Rich, I merged your SleepyHead thread along with the "where did the help go" thread.

Starting numerous threads on the same issues doesn't help folks to help you. I've already merged four of your threads together as it's better to keep your information on this subject in one or two threads so folks can read through it to provide better assistance to you. Scattering your posts all throughout the forum makes your issues more confusing, in other words.

Thanks.

Rich, many people have had issues with the accuracy of the Sleepyhead reports lately - sometimes doubles up the sessions and gives higher than actual numbers. Is there another software package that works with your machine? If so, I would at least try it and compare the results to Sleepyhead.

That may happen in most places, but not around here. We have nice weather for about 8 months, a season we call not summer, followed by 4 months of inferno weather. Too-funny
