For some reason I just cant fall asleep at a sleep study so a lot of my 10 years with CPAP have been by trial and error. Currently using the S9 set at 7-14 full ERP.
Over the last year I have lost 90lbs so trying to figure out if I need a CPAP but since I cant fall asleep at a study I am stuck. I have a full year of data to view on Rescan and wonder what everyone thinks.
For the year have the following
Apnea index 0.1
Hyponea index 0.1
Thanks for any thoughts
There really isn't any way to know without some sort of monitoring, be it in-house or at home. You could just stop using the machine I suppose and see if your heart gets worse or something.
On the other hand, it sounds like you're doing fine with the therapy, so why rock the boat?
I know for me that even though my average ahi is always below 1, and most frequently zero, I would not dream of giving up the machine and possibly returning to that from whence I came. But that's just me. I like not falling asleep while driving and all that sort of stuff.
But as I say, everyone's different. Except me of course. I'm not different. I'm the same.
