I had a sleep study done earlier this month as my psych suspected I may have sleep apnea. I had been blaming medication (for depression and some psychotic issues) she has me on for being so sleepy during the day, but she wanted to see if it wasn't something else. I'm now very glad she did as I was evidently found to have moderate sleep apnea, 18 "events" per hour I was told.
I don't have a copy of the sleep report yet, but plan on requesting a copy at my next visit with the sleep doc. Over the phone yesterday they told me that during the study the apnea was corrected with a cpap set at a pressure of 6. Seems pretty low to me, but I guess that's a good thing.
They said they'd fax through my prescription to a local medical supply company and they will in turn call me to set an appointment to get my equipment. Does anyone have any suggestions, tips, etc. for anything I should be asking/doing when I go?
I'd like to get an autoset machine but I don't know if that's going to be possible since she said the doctor has prescribed me just the single pressure. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and thank you all in advance for any advice/tips/encouragement you can offer. This is all new to me so I really appreciate your help.
