Finally got my CPAP machine, after much worry.
Thought I was likely to get a "brick", but DME handed me A10 Autoset, so that was wonderful.
Here is my sleep study results:
I guess that this shows my AHI = 16.6 during the sleep study.
It was called moderate, but isn't it considered mild to moderate, compared to many sufferers?
During my first 3 days of CPAP use here are my results:
I am concerned that the results show Clear Airway apneas (aren't these the same as Central Apneas?)
These type apneas are a more serious condition than OSA, aren't they?
My original sleep study didn't mention any Clear Airway apneas.
Clear Airway apneas: 1.07/hr
Clear Airway apneas: .92/hr
Clear Airway apneas: 1.05/hr
My machine was set by DME to constant 12cm, as per prescription.
I thought that I would leave this alone, for the time being. See how I am doing. Also, don't know if DME or Dr. is monitoring my device. So don't want to p*** anyone off at the start.
I did change Essentials from Standard to Plus setting, not completely sure what this does, but I think it shows me more data?
Changed my ramp setting from 30 min. to Auto after the 2nd nite.
I know some say to turn off ramp, but I thought it might help me to fall asleep as I am getting used to CPAP.
Any thoughts or advice are appreciated, as I get accustomed to CPAP.
You folks are great.
