High number of apneas in early morning
#1
High number of apneas in early morning
It seems to happen to me often that I go through a big portion of the night with few apneas, low leakage rate.  However I usually get up around 3 or 4 to go to the bathroom.  Afterwards  I sometimes then have a large number of apneas in the period from 4 to 7 pm.  Last night was extreme with maybe 50 apneas occurring during this period, the majority being clear air apneas.   Anyone have any clues about what's happening or had a similar experience ? Prior to my bathroom break, my AHI was under 1 but I ended the night with an AHI of 7.73

Part of this could be sleep/awake junk that shows up near the beginning and end of a sleep cycle. Personally, I seem to have a habit of holding my breath when I turn over and that records as a CA as my airway is open. 

Perhaps if you download and install SleepyHead and post some of the data, forum members could provide additional advice and counseling. And, there is your doctor and sleep tech at your DME for analysis and advice.
