Not sure of the best way to post data. I tried different ways of pasting in data, but this board did not like any of them.
My break down of events last night were
Respiratory effort .2
Wibratory snore .61
Periodic Breathing .95
Thanks for adding the additional information. I can sure see why you're tired with an AHI north of 20. Sometimes the clear airway events are central, and sometimes they are just sleep disturbance. Do you know how much time you spend in apnea (minutes) and what duration the OA and CA events are? Zooming in on the wave form in Sleepyhead can sometimes give you insights of what pressure you're at when those events happen and the duration.
I'm going to be starting on a BiPAP Auto 60 series tomorrow, so I'll join you in exploring what the bilevel machine can do. If I was to make any recommendations it is that you could do some minor tweaks and observe the response. You still have a pretty high OA event level. I might actually raise the EPAP by 1 cm to see if that can improve AHI without worsening CA. Experimenting is really the only path I see to trying to solve the puzzle and own the therapy. So one thing, and a little bit at a time, and let's see where it goes.
Easiest way to post Sleepyhead data is to take screen shots (F12) and load the image data to a free online image hosting site like Imgur or Photobucket. Then copy the image URL address and put it in IMG brackets here.
