New Sleep Study and Machine

If you can round up your old records that were used to establish a need for ASV, you might be able to shorten this process on the second go-around. I assume you retained your old machine?

Looking for my old sleep study records (buried in one of the files around here). I haven't had the followup with the doc yet as that will be at the beginning of February so we will directly address it then.

The myAir app on my phone shows an 0.7 events per hour (figure this is what they call AHI).  Only had a little over 5 hours use as I had a very early get up this morning for my b-weekly church men's group breakfast. Still felt pretty rested even with only about 5 1/2 hours of sleep. I haven't swapped over the mask yet as I still have a lot of good miles on my Quatro FX. Used by long hose as the climate hose is only a 6 footer and I don't want to dump the machine on the floor just yet. Besides, it was too much work yesterday to reroute the hose again when I got home last night. 

I still have my old machine (as well as the one before that - if I can find that one).  We have had the conversation about going back to the old machine if needed with the RT who will also be looking at my data.

My wife did say this machine is a lot quieter than my old System One and quieter than her Dreamstation.
