don't know even ONE person who has osa or uses a cpap. So no one I can bounce things off of (sic).
I was diagnosed with osa and the dr. said I stop breathing 24.7 times an hr. It took me five weeks of many masks til I was able to find one I could tolerate. I've now used the cpap for 16 straight nights anywhere from 7-9 hrs. The settings were all set by my dr. The only thing I really know to look at is the in the "mask fit", the number of hrs. used, and the "events per hr". (I hope that's all I need to be aware of for now.). My "events" on all nights are either 0.somethings or 1.somethings. Only 2 of the 16 nights was it above 1.
The annoying thing, though, is that I'm still just as fatigued (or even more fatigued) than I was before even starting treatment. Mr dr. said it sometimes takes more time. Hope he's right. Thanks.
