Need help and advice on Quality of sleep and AHI
#31
Hi Marillion and Sleeprider,

I have attached the results for the min/max pressure of 6.5. Interestingly the CA events did not go up and hypoapnea did go up. I still do not feel too good. The chart also looks confusing, not sure why is it showing pressure of 5.

There is an obvious problem between your set pressure and what is recorded everywhere else. You may have been at a pressure of 5.0. If you want to try again, you can set it is APAP mode with the minimum and maximum pressure at 6.5. Assuming your pressure was fixed at 5.0 last night, it explains the hypopnea and a couple OA events. I expected CA events to be lower with fixed pressure, and of course at this low pressure, they just about disappeared.

I just checked that CPAP menu Ez Start feature capped the pressure to 5. I am going to use APAP with min/max of 6.5 tonight. Thanks.

I wonder if the Ez Start is going to cap you again.

my response above was not intended to minimize your "do not feel rested" status. I sincerely hope your guides here will be able to help with that.

Hi QAL,

I just tested it by using this setting and I do see pressure of 6.5 on the console. Previously the console was showing pressure of 5, I missed that last night as I cover my CPAP console (it is too bright). I think I will try this tonight. Hope I will get some sleep tonight.

fair is fair.  I got some 15 minute clips from you, so I owe you one.

I believe this is the dream where I was a dog chasing a cat up a tree.  Ha Ha I nearly got 'em.

Ta-daa! like 

Hang with that for a while.  Looks like a nearly complete absence of CA and the best results we've seen from you.
