Is this sleep apnea? Im new.

RE: Is this sleep apnea? Im new.
Your test showed mild apnea.
A type 2 is similar to an in lab test but unattended so it can be at home.
The WarchPAT records more channels so is better than what you had.

So, should i retest it with WatchPAT 200 from dentist office?

Should I treat my "mild" sleep apnea? But i have already brain fog and servere symptoms, in connection with TMJ pain.

AHI above 5 should be treated.

I think maybe the doctor meant 7.8 is better than 30.  Did he say you should not be treated?
I agree with Gideon you need better testing.
Thank you,

My untreated AHI was 87.  You can do it hang in there.

6 is someone poking you with a stick every 10 minutes on average, all night long!

Is only 7 times an hour ok with you?

Well he is wrong.  You need treatment.  Are you moderate or severe based on findings, no. You still require treatment. Tell him you want to be treated.

 I will add to Gideons thought.  Imaging someone choking you every 8 minutes. Then you wake up fight them off. Fall back to sleep to do it every 8 min for 8 hours straight. Sound like fun?

Really no, i was upset with his comment, so i am getting my own APAP device from Resmed from my money. The wait time to real sleep study here in Germany is 3 months. I have no central apnea.

But I have you folks who can help me.

Thats why my dreams are blurred and low in vision. The reported OSA happen during REM. In other sleep stages, maybe i am biting my teeth together.

RE: Is this sleep apnea? Im new.
here, i just started.

i am type 1 diabetic... so higher insulin levels in my blood lead to more OSA... i am wondering if its related with my "mental fatique" or brain fog/cognitive impairment, i suffer from TMJ disorder too

here is the pictures for 2 days:

on first day, i used the default setting with 4 pressure, i increased it to 6 and now it shows 0 AHI.

on 2nd day, i felt great somehow... but i got a little dizziness upon awakeing, so i try it again today.

im planning to switch from nasal mask to full face mask to get more comfortable.

If you can turn off the ramp. I doubt you need it.

The dizziness may just be your body adapting to the CO2 changes. It all looks great.

I wouldn't switch to a Face mask. In about 6 weeks you be breathing through your nose again.

You might move the pressure from 6 to 7. Most adults need a pressure of 7.

I have been wondering where you were...
