[Health] Interpreting sleep study results, EERS enhanced expiratory rebreathing space
RE: Interpreting sleep study results, EERS enhanced expiratory rebreathing space
I want you to realize that every time you use the word "fake" my confidence in what you say takes a huge hit. The CAEvents are real, they are there, no one is faking them, the machine is not faking them, they are real. You called them discountable and I thought that was a great term, a very applicable term., But the you followed it with a /fake.

This may be because of the language difference.

I'm not and I won't, but what if I called you a Fraud and a Fake? That what you are doing is incorrect and wrong? I'm not.

If you truly feel they are "fake" you should not be using those events as indicators as you obviously are.

RE: Interpreting sleep study results, EERS enhanced expiratory rebreathing space
Ok, Fred,

not want polemize. I would better call the events as "discountable", maybe. What I am preety much sure is that CA's following and closely associated with arousal/awakenings - transition back to sleep should not be used for nothing else, other than indicate that an arousal/awakening happened, which would not need to be treated with ASV and such. The arousal/awakening should be tackled first.

thanks

Since you are using them that way call them CA/arrousal CA because that is your flag and you are looking for it in association with an arrousal. ln your narrative I would say that these CA/arrousal should be discounted as Central events.

Have you seen posts in other threads about starting points and such for ASV? Like this one from sleeprider?

Seems like you know enough about what you're doing to adapt these general recommendations.
Caveats: I'm just a patient, with no medical training.

Sorry Joey,

try the basic starting point for ASV then adjust from there.
EPAP = 4-15
PS = 3-15

Thanks bonjour, I'll try that... I'll hopefully receive the ASV next week, if not, it will definitely arrive the week after.

Haven't been using CPAP for the past week or so, grinding has been significantly worse than with CPAP (using bruxism guard to protect teeth). I have an oximeter which I used last night... some minor desaturations but at or above 95% for almost the entire time.

ASV will arrive sometime next week.

Joey, when the ASV arrives and you start therapy, I suggest a new thread. We normally like to keep therapy information together, but we are getting pretty long in the tooth with this thread.
