I will have to wait for ten day to get the full report, but I did learn A) I still have bad sleep apnea, B) I will be changing my kind of sleep mask, C) I also will most likely be changing both the maker of my Sleep Machine and possibly its type and function.
I am hoping these changes will give me batter sleep and thus better days.
I do not know if my sleep apnea is the cause of my current health problems, but as there did so much needing changes I am hoping this might just be it… and sleep apnea is said to cause chronic fatigue like problems.
This is after about three years of using an ASV machine and a Full/Full face mask, in what has SEEMED to be successfully…working and the reports of less than 1 apnea per night seemed to show that.
But I have been running into a few problems, first my first machine went nuts and it was replaced with the next newer model.
Now the newer model is also seeming acting up as well.
I get odd problems like higher rising pressure when there seems to be no reason or cause; I have even felt it rise BEFORE I even fall asleep while breathing nice and deep and steady.
And I get odd reports from time to time.
I also have heard that the Philips machines are not a good as the Resmed machines.
Last night I was tested on a Resmed machine and one thing I noticed was even though it was set for 10 (PSI??) it blew LESS air in my face…that is: there is pressure and then these is air flow as in CFM Cubic Feet of air per Minute.
The Resmsd have less CFM at the same pressure.
How much this will affect my sleep I do not know but I am hoping to find out ASAP.
Also the sleep tech hinted that I may not need a ASV machine and perhaps can use just plain old CPAP…or just a Bi-Flex system.
He also got me to try a simpler mask, which I found I like.
So I can no longer requiem the Phillips machines.
So what is the best Resmed Bi-Flex and or ASV machines??
