New to forum - Huge AHI numbers!
#11
We'd like to see a screenshot of a SleepyHead report. Pick a day that has a high AHI reading and post that.

The AHI numbers are one thing but they are not worth much without things like pressure, leak rate, etc.

I was wrong about the model of the S9...it is a VPAP Auto.

Also, I will study up on how to post a screenshot. Thanks for your help.

Not sure if this is what you need. Trying to figure out how sleepyhead orders the graphs.

Also, my S9 is in "S" mode. And the AHI matches what was on the machine last night.

thanks,

Hi BigMike,
What we need is a screenshot of the Daily Page.
Include the Following graphs: Events, Flow Rate, Pressure, leak rate. Also include the stats on the left: You can get rid of Calendar to make everything fit better.
Also, can get rid of right side bar.

Hi BigMike, those numbers do look scary!

Once you get 8 posts up, you can link to image files on external servers such as PhotoBucket and Imgur. The permission doesn't occur instantly - it has to wait for a batch process to run - but within a few hours you'll be able to give us a lot more detail, which will help us understand what's happening.

Your very welcome.
Your almost at 8 posts, and as DeepBreathing stated, use one of external servers to upload. I believe Paula gave you some links for instruction.

That was your 8th post. Simply try again.

As DeepBreathing wrote, a short time after your 8th post the forum software will allow a new member to post links.

You should ask for copies of your prescription and both sleep tests. Make sure you ask for (and receive) the full reports, including some plotted data, not just a page with written summary or recommendations. Usually 3 or more pages in all.

If you choose to post the sleep reports, be sure to black out any personal information like names and addresses, birth dates, social security numbers, etc.

By the way, the VPAP Auto is a very capable premium bi-level auto-titrating machine. I suggest looking at the full reports of your sleep tests before making changes in the settings.

Your recent degradation in AHI may have been caused by change in sleep position, change in diet, change in medications (prescription or nonprescription) or some other change.

I suspect your sleepy doctor never looked at your mmachine's data and was unaware how bad things had gotten.

He should have downloaded and checked the data from your machine instead of looking only at sleep reports. You probably should consider finding a more engaged sleep doctor.

If your doctor was aware of how bad your AHI is (as reported by your machine), I suggest you should not only get a new sleep doctor but should also consider reporting him to your insurance company and state licencing board as negligent.
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.
