Need Help Understanding BiPAP Clinical Settings
#31
RE: Need Help Understanding BiPAP Clinical Settings
Hello again, I wanted to add another question.

At night when I first put on my machine and lay in bed, my heard starts racing and pounding to where it's very noticeable. This has always been the case but I've kind of ignored it, but fairly uncomfortable and distracting. I wonder what could cause this? Am I not getting enough air in? Not enough out? Just breathing against the machine in general? I have no known heart issues and this happens only at night using my machine.

An update on my previous posts... Still having great results (AHI less than 1, few leaks, etc.) but still not much progress yet.

RE: Need Help Understanding BiPAP Clinical Settings
Jake, I sometimes have heartbeats that I am very conscious of. I have a clean bill of health, as much as possible, and yet occasionally experience this pulse. My wife and dog don't complain, so maybe it's me. I think this is normal, and without pain, dizziness or other symptoms, it is nothing I'm going to worry about.
