Lingering fatigue: trust Resmed sleep report?
RE: Lingering fatigue: trust Resmed sleep report?
Hi, Gcritchley
_long journey!
_It looks to me your flow limitations, and flow reduction-driven-awakenings would have almost worked out. Yet, you keep on going with a very poor sleep efficiency due to tens of awakenings.
_ as I told you quite few times above, there is a high chance (always hoping I am deadly  wrong) you would suffer from the UARS-associated curse, the PLM's (or similar thing arise you up), as millions of people in this world, including myself.
_ before we move ultimately to this conclusion, could you please post some 10min-windows enclosing your TV contrasts and awakenings, as well as the respiratory rate (RR) wave waveform (with the median reference line)?
Good luck

...in time: in what kind of environment do you live, with regard to noise (loud music, conversation in the street, early birds, Cell phone noise, airplane and/or cars passing by....). All these give me awakenings! You may believe: long run UARS-bearing people are unbeliavable sensitized!

Hi Mper6749!!

Here are 3 random screenshots as requested with zoom in. I tried to avoid the CA events. 

Thanks for your help. IF I did have UARS/RLS, what is the usual and successful treatment for this condition?

HI - I'm actually lucky, I live in a very quiet house. there's no real external noise - sometimes the house cracks from settling but not too often.

I do sleep with my wife, and I'm not sure if she moves around much. I definitely need to get the camera up and running again to see what we do. I do suspect that I am a very light sleeper, so minimizing all contributions to waking up is key. Interested to hear your response to the graphs with 10 minute windows.

thanks!!

Flow limitation and all obstructive events are gone! The minor CA is nothing to worry about, just give it time. This really looks good.

Thank you! I know, it's incredible what the simple change in machine has done. Gonna sit right here at these settings for a bit and see how I start to feel.

Hi,
Unfortunately, one of the three screens was repeated…..yet, that is my preliminary interpretation, taking analogy with my audio-recorded calibrated curves: You, basically, have two types of awakenings, (1) still some air flow reduction-driven ones (need some two more 10min-windows to confirm), and (2) moves (PLM's or other trigger)-driven ones.
_3:33: something move you, awakening you, followed by groaning/moaning and back to sleep...chances of PLM's, or, luckly, other trigger;
_3:38: idem
_7:04: air flow reduction and awakening (need some two more 10min-windows elsewhere to confirm);
 
It appears you have similar drawbacks with awakenings, like me. As I told you before: firstly, a good diagnose; you would definitively need to audio-record your sleep (close to your head and knees; three nights are enough), this is amazingly simple, cheap, with extraordinary outcomes!
Once PLM’s awakenings are confirmed: medication is the only solution; I can share my experience with this later on.
For type (1) awakenings? Well, this one thing I am struggling with for quite some time, playing with EPAP and PS; no totally satisfactory solution thus far.
Good luck

Hi friends and gurus!!

I am popping back in with some tweaking issues with my new Vatuo machine. Still trying to lessen the Flow limitations, but seeing CAs all over the place! also feeling a lot of chipmunk cheeks/balloon cheeks during the night (I tape my mouth and use nasal pillows).

Attached are two nights' graphs.

What would be the next move in tweaking things over here? Most things are still at default settings.

thanks as always everybody, and mper, I will be videoing and exploring all of that RL possibilities more when the machine is doing all it can do.

...CA's firstly appear false events associated with moves/awakenings. Let us confirm on ten-minutes windows!
