RE: Day sleeper
I don't know if this was just psychosomatic or a coincidence but I slept four hours before my shift on the new settings and I feel great.  Sometime tomorrow I will post the OSCAR screen shot if you're interested.  I would do it while I'm at work but my work IP is banned from the forums.  I work at a hotel so I assume one of our guests did something to get all of us banned.   Laugh-a-lot

RE: Day sleeper
I've been running the 9/15 EPR 3 settings for a few days and when I get a chance I'll post some OSCAR screen shots.  That said, the quality of my sleep seems to have improved a little but my AHI is worse (around 5 now EDIT I just looked at my myair app and it's actually only up 1 point or so, so maybe 3.5-4 now not 5), also I had a much harder time falling asleep and I definitely wake up from the high pressure sometimes.  If the Resmed Aircurve Vauto is the solution, how would I make the argument to my doctor that it is necessary, and what's the best way to get one inexpensively?  I had to put off CPAP therapy quite some time because buying a machine from my insurance was just as expensive as buying it outright.  My mother was very generous and bought me a new Redmed Airsense Autoset because I couldn't afford it myself and I'm very grateful to have it.

RE: Day sleeper
Have any of you ran into the issue of knocking your cpap machine over in the middle of the night?  Last night I turned in my sleep and pulled my cpap machine off my night stand by the hose.  This is the third time it has happened.  The first time I considered it a fluke, the second time I made a mental note, and now that it has happen a 3rd (over the span of a 2-3 months) I'm concerned I will damage my machine.  Have any of you experienced this, and know a remedy?  Thanks.

Get a hose hanger / holder. I did, and that was the single best thing I did for my CPAP Therapy. 2nd best thing was a hose cover. It keeps the hose as quiet as can be if it should happen to rub against something. 

No way could I ever knock my machine off it's bedside stand with the hose hanger.  Cool

RE: Day sleeper
Some users have modified a Nightstand drawer with tube and power coming out the back. Makes it impossible to pull over.

RE: Day sleeper
I think I'm getting used to the new settings. Besides my sleep hygiene is there anything I should be worried about on these charts?

RE: Day sleeper
Flow limits and gaps in your therapy

Flow Limits are driving your pressure and the presence of RERAs also speaks to Flow Limits so they are definitely on a watch list.

How do you feel?
