If I could average 10 hours a night, I'm sure I'd probably be a whole lot better at staying awake during the day....but between issues staying asleep and living in a college town....and trying to keep my job. Its 6-7 hours a night for 6 nights, and then ~10 hours on Sunday.
Sunday I take a break from my stimulants...and yet I'm pretty functional....sometimes more than during the week.
You may be a dreamer, but I'm The Dreamer, the definite article you might say!
I know we're supposed to average but I definitely sleep longer on the weekends especially on Sundays. I also take naps on Saturday and Sunday but can't during the week. SleepHead says that I've averaged 8.48 hrs since I started in Dec. 2012. However this includes the 11 hours per day I slept when I first got my cpap and several 3 to 4 hour naps several times a week.
I can tell you that the quality of my sleep is much better since I started using cpap. I'll take quality over quantity any day.
I average a little over 7 hours each night.
Using the ResMed Mirage SoftGel Nasal Mask with a chinstrap
I do not use either the Ramp nor the EPR Comfort features
Have been on CPAP since December 1998
This is my 3rd machine
I use the ResMed ResScan Software (Version 3.16)
I usual get around 3-4 hours sometimes longer sometimes none! Being a carer and nightshift worker I dont get a chance for a full sleep so I grab it when I can.
