Thought I would share my 2nd Sleep Study Results. In a Nutshell - My first was 3 year's ago it was mild was prescribed an auto C-pap, was always tired and AHI was real high still. Took me doing my own research, reading my data, learning from apnea forums & most importantly switching Dr's were they would actually want and get a 2nd sleep study done. Results of second sleep study are below. It was on Bi-Pap overall AHI = 78.6 per hr, Central apnea Index = 67.0 per hr. Next up a third study next week with an ASV (What me and the 2nd dr knew was needed), but these are the hurdles one must jump to get insurance to agree/pay. Seems they actually spend more money then save. They have taken alot of control away from Dr's.
Thanks in advance for any input etc. I do use a "loaner" older s9 adapt asv but I still cant seem to get my ahi below the 20's. The Dr hopes with a newer ASV it would have more tuning options etc.
Well I tried to put into the message scans of my sleep study from imgur but guess since I am a noob at posting it would allow me. hopefully i can reach whatever limit and be allowed to share the study or if their was another way to do so that would be great.
Best of luck with the ASV titration. Those are some pretty horrible AHI numbers for bilevel! Just for reference, could you summarize your current settings on the S9 Adapt? What kinds of events comprise most of your residual AHI?
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Much success to you as you continue your CPAP therapy and good luck to you at your ASV titration.
Hang in there for more answers to your questions.
