Need opinions about breathing waveforms - REM sleep? awake? don't know?
Thanks, Sleeprider. I was thinking that the Airsense 10 Autoset algorithm would be better in my case, too.

I appreciate you and robysue looking at my graphs and giving your analysis.

So there is a definite advantage to having a machine that only goes higher for the episodes of OSA that happen during the night. Now in your case, if an auto machine was selected, I'd want one that responded faster like the Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset (not for her). The second advantage to that machine is the true EPR which lowers EPAP by 3 cm, making higher pressures tolerable. Your own data shows APAP works better, in fact you seem to have less than half the AHI with an auto algorithm working. In no instance was hypopnea or CA a problem.

Yeah, I definitely think so.
