New to Cpap and not noticing a change

Sometimes it just takes some time, but sometimes you can tweak some things and make it even better.

Think of your apnea as being like smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. When you stop, it takes a while to get over the after effects.

Do you know what your AHI was during your sleep study?

By the way, you say you have ResScan, but you have a Philips Respironics machine. They don't work together.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Sclark, I used to think all that was needed was to use the machine 100% of sleep time and eventually, say in three months, you would feel better. Then I learned that without good sleep- REM and deep sleep your body does not repair the damage of the day. Your AHI is very good- with a little time and good sleep you should note some improvement soon. When I switcted to an ASV machine I gave myself six months to a year for the machine and I to work in sync. Nine months later I was feeling great.

Another consideration is your current state of health. If you haven't had a thorough physical with bloodwork this may be a good time to rule out problems such as hypothyroid, diabetes, anemia to name a few.

Good luck, keep us posted on how you're doing.
