New to Therapy - Starting on BiLevel
#71
RE: New to Therapy - Starting on BiLevel
Just thought I'd provide a bit of an update. I've changed the machine back to CPAP mode with a pressure of 4 and plan on keeping it that way for the time being. I noticed that even with the very mild settings I changed it to I was having an extremely rough time day-to-day on top of my pre-existing problems with no appreciable improvement shown in OSCAR. My AHI has consistently been at or around 1 on CPAP mode with a pressure of 4. I've got an appointment in a couple weeks to go over the data and hopefully discuss alternative treatments. I'm expecting an idiopathic hypersomnia diagnosis based on the MSLT I had done and my understanding of the symptoms. I plan to keep using the machine on its current settings until the appointment on the off chance that it ends up proving beneficial.
