CONGRATULATIONS! on your new machine and it's GREAT to hear that you had such a positive experience at the clinic you went to.

Welcome to the forum!

I think titration study results are viewed as the gold standard by most sleep doctors, but the titration study will last just a few hours, usually less than one full night of sleep.

Our pressure needs can change hugely from one hour or night to the next, so it is great you are getting a data capable Auto machine.

Regardless of the pressure the titration study comes up with, you will probably want to keep the machine in Auto mode.

And you will want to fire up the software and look over the data at least weekly, to monitor your amount of obstructive apneas and central apneas (clear airway apneas), and how often the pressure is maxing out.

Take care.
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
