Help understanding Sleepy Head
#1
So i'm kind of new to Sleepy Head and was wondering if anybody could help me understand it and tell me if what I am seeing is bad.

[attachment=1462]

I know that AHI is how many times I have stopped breathing which is okay for the amount given right now. Of course it could be better.

I just wanted to know about the air leaks really cause that is what I get complaints about most of the time.

I have another picture I will include in another post if that is accepted of the graph of my sleeping events.

I just looked at my machines stats for last nights sleep it said that I had 0% leaks. So I don't know what is right or wrong here.

Welcome to the forum.

Sleepyhead has a user adjustable parameter for leak rate under the File->Preferences->CPAP->Flag leaks over threshold. I'm not certain what F&P has as a threshold setting. It might be a difference of what each one has as a value in this area. Hopefully, your manual should have the leak specification listed. If it's different, simply change SH's parameter to match.

Edit: If you haven't gone to this site, I highly recommend it.

Hey Eric,

Your numbers don't look bad at all. Your leak number is just fine. Not broke, don't fix.

Your AHI of 4.+ is a little higher than it needs to be, but not a real problem. Most of your events are the goofy little Hypops, which I believe you can zap with just a tiny bit more pressure. You're at fixed pressure 12. I'm thinking if you increased that just a smidgeon, say to 12.5, you might just slide right into your "sweet spot."

Anyhow, you're doing well, so keep up the good work!
