For the sake of the next person with this problem...what did you do?

I removed the SH program, then ran regedit, searched the term Sleepyhead, and deleted those lines in regedit. Reinstalled SH. Be very careful to only delete only the lines that have Sleepyhead in them.

Based on feedback I just tested the batch file. It has a "Second Thought" option that you must answer "Y" to delete the registry key. If you press <ENTER> it will abort the deletion. . . you HAVE to answer with a "Y", "y", or "yes". To test it, Run the file twice. On the first run you'll see the key's value expressed as a bunch of numbers. On the second run this area should be blank, if you actually deleted it.

(10-25-2016, 07:43 PM)Sleeprider Wrote: PS is pressure support. The difference between IPAP and EPAP. There should be an Min EPAP not a max. So, I suggest:
Mode Auto B
Max IPAP 12
Min EPAP 4.0
Min PS 2.0
Max PS 4.0
Flex BiFlex
Biflex 2

To clarify what this means. When you start therapy with the old settings you are at 4.0/4.0. This is the root cause of the obstructive apnea and hypopnea. With the new settings you will start at 6.0/4.0. The machine will automatically adjust and if it detects obstruction will raise EPAP. If it detects hypopnea, snores or flow limitations it will raise IPAP. On your machine EPAP and IPAP can move independently, but with the PS min of 2.0, IPAP will always be at least 2 cm more than EPAP, but never more than 4 cm. The machine will only to to as high pressure as necessary to resolve AHI. You may need more EPAP pressure if significant obstructive events occur, but lest take our time. The settings I have outlines are very very conservative for minimal pressure and to facilitate exhalation, but give you more pressure support which I'm sure you will find more comfortable.

Sleep rider, or others, can you tell from the charts below what I would need to do to eliminate ALL AHI's? I know that 1.5 per hour is insignificant as far as health is concerned, but I still wake up due to the few events I am having, and I do wake up with headaches, Last night I woke up due to a nightmare; I took not of the time, and it coincides with an event, according to the SH charts.
