I am new to the forum, any suggestions? I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow to check on this situation
Howdy, aleram22, welcome to Apnea Board!
Hoping others can provide more insight, but here's one idea if you'd like to take a more active role in your own therapy:
This may not be quick enough to get info for your appointment on Wednesday, but I would recommend that since you have a DeVilbiss Intellipap, get an SD card reader (usually around $15-20 or so) and use the free SleepyHead software to analyze your machine's data on your personal computer. Knowing what events precede your waking up periods might shed some light on the actual cause. Could be leaks, could be apnea events (due to improperly set pressures), could be something else. The software will help, and it's free, (SEE THIS THREAD).
After you install the program on your personal computer, feel free to post any questions, issues or comments in this thread about SleepyHead.
