Lowenstein SmartMax APAP Optimisation
#1
Lowenstein SmartMax APAP Optimisation
Hi, Everyone. So here is my story. I am male 27 years old and I live in the UK. Before more than year started TRT as my testosterone levels were low for my age. The first 3 months were great. After that i started having:
- a lot of fatigue
-bad memory
-brainfog
-anxiety
-wake up often
-bad cognition
-bad verbal comunication
-low motivation

So in July i had 2 nights home sleep apnea study. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea. Then i decided to purchase an APAP machine. At that moment there wasnt many options for APAP machines as there is worldwide shortage. I purchased Lowenstein SmartMax APAP.  I choosed Philips Dreamwear full face mask.Unfortunatelly the mask didnt worked out for me. I tried for 2 weeks to sleep with it but i had a few times only were i feel asleep but for 1-2 hours max. I gave up the mask and at that time i went to my home country for 2 months. After i returned to the UK i decided to order Fisher and Paykel Evora Full Face Mask. This time i was able to breath good with the new mask. So my first try was in the end of September. I started to learn how to fall asleep with the mask.Only after a few days i felt that i have more energy and better mood. I still woke up 3-4 times at night but overall i feel improvement. At least at the moment i have enough energy and motivation so i can work since before i started using the machine i was feeling that i wont be able to work. Also i can do some trainings at gym. I still have:
brainfog
-fatigue but much less than before
-anxiety
-wake up often
-bad cognition
-bad verbal comunication
-bad memory
I really hope that i can improve these symptoms as much as possible since i want to communicate with people but i have bad memory and i cannot talk properly especially since i am not native English speaker. This is holding me back quite a lot in my life atm.
So i installed PrismaTS and checked my sleep data from the SD card.
I am attacing my last night sleep.Its very detailed so i hope that i can get help.Unfortunatelly my machine is not compatible with OSCAR  but i still have PrismaTS.
Please give me yout advices how to optimise my APAP machine so i can enjoy my life at it fullest.
Thanks in advance
