Hi. I am bugo and I live in the midwestern US. I was diagnosed today with obstructive sleep apnea. The test results were provided to me and I quit breathing 20 times an hour for more than 10 seconds during normal sleep and 101.4 times an hour during R.E.M. sleep. I understand that 100 times an hour is high. I will hopefully be getting my machine in the next few days and hoping it works because I have felt this way most of my life and I am ready to quit feeling this way.

G'day bugo, welcome to Apnea Board.

Yes, 100 events an hour is pretty rough - no wonder you don't feel well. Regarding the machine, don't sign up for anything without ensuring that 1) It's an auto-titrating device and 2) it's fully data capable. Sadly, it seems a lot of people in the DME business don't have the patient's best interests at heart and they will offload any old rubbish on you. Read this for some good advice: http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...ngle:Links

Hi bugo. Another welcome to the board. Listen to DeepBreathing and get a good machine. The next step will be getting a mask that works for you.
