RE: Newbie. Not sure if I'll be using a CPAP long term
So I downloaded and installed Sleepyhead. Imported from my SD card. Not sure what I am looking at, but definitely looks a lot scarier than the resmed myair website made me believe with the 97-100 thing. Any point in posting any of the sleepyhead stuff in here? What is the format that people use? Screenshot of something?

F11 takes you to full screen mode
F12 takes a screen shot
F11 again takes you back to normal
on a windows machine the screenshot will go into your documents folder/sleepyheaddata/screenshots

Do people post screenshots on here? Just the summary on the left side or the entire thing?

I read through the FAQ in the forum. At this point, I'm a little overwhelmed, I think.

RE: Newbie. Not sure if I'll be using a CPAP long term
Here is my screenshot from sleepyhead for my last night of using the Wisp mask. I used it for 7 hours. Previous to this night, I had 3 other nights, but was really only able to stand wearing the Wisp mask for an hour each of those nights.

Can't post anymore today, so I'll post the p10 image tomorrow.

So far so good. Can you remove the Mask Pressure graph (keep the Pressure graph), and include both the Flow Limit and Snore graphs. You may need to shrink the height of a few of the other graphs a bit to fit them in.

Your machine raises pressure in response to snores and flow limitations (apnea precursors), so it can be useful to look at those graphs as part of the big picture.

Stats look ok so far, Mogul.
What kaisgram said is good.
Sounds like you might need to work on
mask comfort so you can go the distance for all night 7 days a week,

Looks great, very stable therapy pressure. I'd increase the ramp minimum pressure or turn it off. You can see that you are using a lot of effort to breath at that low pressure for the first 25 minutes (see flow rate from start to 23:40). That would be relieved if you increased the starting pressure a bit or just turned off ramp if you can tolerate it. You shouldn't feel like you're sucking air through a straw.

Your AHI of 2.32 is goo and you should be able to get that below 1
Your leak rate below 10 looks like the mask is working for you.
Yes lots of pressure changes and activity going on, all while you snooze, the machine is doing a lot and doing it well.

Looks like you will be moving on to fine tuning the CPAP for maximum benefit. :grin:

I would agree that based on what you said in your first post, these graphs show some major benefit. Smile

Hang in there.
