Keep having interrupted sleep
Keep having interrupted sleep
Hi there,

My issue is that i keep waking up several times a night. I've been using CPAP since May, and in the start i didn't have this issue.

Almost every night, i wake up a few times and feel somewhat tired during the day. It also creates some difficulty getting up in the morning, like the old no cpap days. 

Since I switched from N30I to N20 I've had quite some increase in AHI. Not sure if this is the issue.

RE: Keep having interrupted sleep
at the bottom of the events tab move the slider to 2 - 3 minutes. above that, click on session start times or session end times. then click on a session time. the object is to scroll through your graphs, especially about the last 2 minutes of each session looking for clues to what wakes you. like flow limitations, repeating flow rate patterns (some of these are easier to see at a 7-10 minute scale), leaks, whatever you see. not all awakenings are related to disordered breathing though so it's useful to pay attention when you wake up, noting anything you might think relevant. for example, need to pee, waking slowly or abruptly, panting, anxious, elevated heart rate, sweating, pins and needles, dizziness. use a video camera to see what's happening at the time of the awakenings. use a sleep or snore app that records noise above a certain threshold. also note daytime items that might have a bearing on sleep, like stress, pain, medications, alcohol, types of food consumed. these kinds of things might help narrow it down.
