High Resp Rate
I'm new to using an APAP, as I just started 2 weeks ago. I have a Resmed S9 in the Autoset mode.

I'm sleeping well, with an AHI right around 2.0. I have noticed a trend occuring in the middle of the night. When I am sleeping my respiration rate (Breaths/minute) suddenly increase from about 15 to 20. This lasts for about an hour and returns to normal. This can sometimes occur one or twice per night. Is this REM sleep perhaps?

A typical graph is at:

Sorry, I'm too new to allow links.

**** I fixed it for you. In the future, use it as an attachment. See the how-to here:

RE: High Resp Rate
Hi Kbeckman, Welcome

I believe this is happening when you just enter REM.

I have similar patterns too, while in REM, according to WebMD: In people without sleep disorders, heart rate and respiration speed up and become erratic during REM sleep. During this stage the eyes move rapidly in different directions.

Hi kbeckman, welcome to Apnea Board!

There are file size limits - the file you tried to attach was a bit too large.

See this thread, which gives the limits:

Quote:Your total attachment storage is limited depending on your level of membership (found just above your avatar and below your username; also found on your profile)
  • New Members: 200 kb
  • Members: 512 kb
  • Preferred Members: 600 kb
  • Wiki Editors: 700 kb
  • Master Members: 1024 kb

For individual size limits, (.doc, .txt, .jpg, etc), see this chart.

SuperSleeper,

For future reference, is there a minimum post requirement before being allowed to add an attachment? i.e. can a new member add an attachment on their very first post with the caveat of the membership level size restrictions?

For some reason I thought there was a post requirement of 8 posts before being allowed to add attachments.

Am I possibly confusing the post number requirement to be able to add a link to a post?

Thanks,

Ren

No limit on adding attachments for new members - only on file size, within the limits as posted above. The problem with kbeckman's file was that it was a bit over 300 kb, and the limit for new members is 200 kb.

Yes, that restriction is for outside links, not attachments. Correct. It's basically a spam-control thing... many times spammers join the forum and post an outside link right away. This prevents that from happening. There are also other restrictions for those who try to by-pass this by posting a bunch of posts quickly to build a higher post-count, but we have counter-measures installed to prevent that from happening as well (which will remain semi-secret for obvious reasons).

It's called The Hammer.

I need to go looking for another hammer avatar. This one has lost it's threatening capabilities due to continued familiarity. That and I cracked the handle on the last knees I hit.
