Help with optimizing PAP for 85-year-old

RE: Help with optimizing PAP for 85-year-old
Unfortunately, we only have a summary and no idea what results were for other pressures or if the reduction of events was linear, or even what kind of events were recorded. Request the detailed results. I'm certain that this was simply a typical window where CA events were less. Also, what were the SpO2 results. If your doctor or clinic can only quack and not tell your logically their strategy, you know they are quacks. This looks like quacks and you need to move on to a competent professional.

RE: Help with optimizing PAP for 85-year-old
Thanks, Sleeprider. Yeah, I'm going doctor shopping for my dad.

But, I don't get it. His current practitioner is both highly experienced and unusually well-credentialed, with diverse intellectual interests - certainly no quack, at least not as I understand the attributes and qualities typically ascribed to quacks.

All I can think is that this doctor may be badly overextended due to his position and attendant responsibilities. Or, more darkly...there are some right powerful disincentives (professional, financial, or administrative) dissuading him from prescribing ASV for my father. Even so, ASV aside, if he could've offered at least *some* semblance of a strategy for improving his sleep...

Oh well. In any event, barring a pleasant surprise from the doc - time to move on.
