I've already mentioned some other pages earlier, that i took jpegs of before, such as the prescription and what number my prescription was, etc, but this part I have not yet come to understand.
I am hoping some of you can tell me anything i need to know, what type of sleep apnea I have, for example, etc.
Let me first say that I have gained a lot of weight for the first time in my life due to medication I was on, now off and am just slowly now starting to lose the weight, which will take some time.
My doctor did offer that he thought i might not have SA once i lose the weight.
Up until 3 years ago, i always slept on my sides and NEVER on my back.
I developed a bit of vertigo and can no longer lie on my right hand side with my right ear down on the pillow as that sets it off.
So I have just started sleeping on my back and I seem to stay on it 100% of the time now and it was at this time that i started to snore.
The prescription has me at 13
I might add, I am not impressed to find out I snore ;-) Its not a trait I associate with femininity. I remember that my mother snored as well and so she must have had SA in suspect, in retrospect.
STUDY INDICATION: The patient underwent a CPAP titration at pressures of 5 through 14cm H20. Initially a face Forme full face mask was used but because of air leakage this was switched to a Mirage medium face mask.
SNORING: The patient was noted to snore at a moderate intensity until a pressure of 14cm H20 was achieved
First sleep onset latency was immediate.
Sleep efficiency was mildly reduced.
The sleep stage breakdown was normal except for a marked decrease in the frequency of REM
REM Latency was
There were 2 REM episode (s) with normal distribution.
The frequency of persistent arousals was severely increased with almost
⅔ due to respiratory events.
The frequency of sleep stage shifts was severely increased.
Alpha intrusions were frequent.
The frequency of persistent respiratory events was severely increased at 40/hr.
The oxygen saturation was well maintained.
Restless legs during wakefulness were not seen. The patient displayed no unusual behaviours during sleep. Periodic limb movements during sleep were not seen.
Cardiac rate and rhythm were normal
An optimal CPAP titration study at a pressure of 14cm H20. Other than the persistence of snoring and a few respiratory events, the patient also did well at pressures of 11 to 12cm H20
Using the S9 Escape with the very limited data card, is there any reason for me to use Software?
If so, I have a couple MacBook Pros so would need software for a mac if one were to be recommended?
