New AHI Low but Didn't Feel That Great
#1
The other night I had a record 0.24 total AHI in over 8 hours of sleep. Those 8 hours were broken twice for me to get up. I should have been feeling top of the world but I didn't. While I wasn't brain fogged I was weary most of the day. There was a period at the end of the night where I had a large mask leak and maybe this is why, I don't know.

The other night I had an AHI of around 5.0 and felt great all day, go figure. This has happened before

I've posted the SH results to see if anyone has any ideas for me. Do I now need to do some more tweaking of my settings? Is my flow rate OK? Is my leak rate dodgy? I'd love some feedback.

Having said all that, I am at the end of a very long and hard term here at school and this might also be where the tiredness comes from.

Nothing really jumps out as unusual apart from that large leak episode, and I doubt if that would have caused your tiredness. There may have been other things happening which prevented you getting a sound sleep - I find that small mask leaks which don't show up in the stats can be disturbing.

You may well be right. As apneacs we tend to see everything that happens through the prism of apnea. But of course there is a whole world of things happening which can affect the way we feel.
