RE: Need Advice
My2 cents worth..... It definately looks like a machine glitch to me.

I would un-plug, wait a minute, replug it in, repeat process one more time and then leave it plugged in. See what happens tonight. Sometimes these machines can reboot just like a computer. If the same thing happens tonight. Take machine to DME or repair shop.

It looks like there is a string of central apneas there. What's that all about. Were you awake?

Fullthrottle, I wanted to add that you can take a screenshot of the data by hitting the PrntScr button on your keyboard (if you use a PC). This puts the image into the clipboard. Then open your image software (I use the free IrfanView) and copy it into there.

You can also save the data as a pdf I think then attach the file.

Have you talked to your DME about this?

RE: Need Advice
Sleep study showed moderate obstructive Dr. prescribed 6-10 auto or 8 constant. They said pressures above 10 started to cause me to wake. Showed 95% leak 1.6 max 9.6. Could this be from breathing out of my mouth showing up as central?The RT's we see only care that they get paid 2500 dollars from our healthcare system for a 700-1000 dollar cpap machine they have have no idea whats going on with the data.So thats why im trying to get help from you guys.

FullThrottle, this is just my opinion so please take it with a grain of salt. I believe you have something going on here that is not normal and whether it is the machine or a bad diagnosis is not apparent. If your DME is useless (as so many are) please get back to see your doctor. You cannot rely on proper diagnosis from the internet! You really need to go over these numbers with a DOCTOR! With CAs registered that high, if this data is correct you could cause yourself real harm by not seeing a specialist! Now is NOT the time for DIY CPAP!

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

The Rt,s are not doctors nor do we. My advice is to contact to your sleep doc ASAP.
