New CPAP, new thread
RE: New CPAP, new thread
Here's 3/19. More CAs, but AHIs are lower, especially divided
between the two sessions. First post shows whole night; first
session; second session.

Second post shows expansion late in the night; second,
more CAs later.

Same setup as earlier, min/max=11, EPR 1.

It is interesting that at lower pressures you only had obstructive apnea and that raising the pressure only slightly appears to have caused central apnea effects but treated some of the obstruction. Kind of like a treatment emergent CA pattern.

Lets try a slightly higher pressure and see if it makes things better or worse. Min/max = 13, EPR = 1.

Okay. 

Wrote my sleep doc, asking about his experience with palatal prolapse.
Will probably hear back Monday.

Is there any useful info in this Overview?

Doggone screen is too short.

The main thing that overview shows is that your AHI is higher now than it used to be at the same pressure. I don't think that it tells the whole story though and if you post the TV and MV charts I believe they will show significant increase.

Here's what I think you've asked for.
Not sure they show what you expect.

The graph is cut off so we can't see median MVs. Leak rate would be interesting to see as well.

RE: New CPAP, new thread
Will move stuff around so all of those graphs are visible.

Here's 3/20. I checked how I felt before viewing the graphs.
Red and Dave suggest this. I felt more awake and alert this
morning. Got stuff done. So that agrees with the 4+ AHI.

The leaks timing also agrees with the night's activities. I was
sweating (very interesting dream) and the tape got loose. At
the bathroom break, I dried off and replaced it.
