I've been using ResMed S8 Elite II on APAP mode for 4 years now. I got wonderful relief from symptoms for a long time, but gradually my symptoms have been re-emerging. This has been so gradual over the past 6 months that I didn't realize until yesterday that it was apnea symptoms. (clear now that it is: never feeling rested in the am, daytime sleepiness, excessive nighttime sweating, depression, irritability, forgetfulness, reflux, etc. I should point out that I have gained weight which may be a factor.
I am new to the machine stats, but did some research this morning and figured out how to access some data, which I report below.
Press: 10.4 day & week; 10.6 mo; 10.2 6 mo; 10.0 yr
Leak: 0.10 L/s day; 0.036 wk; 0.032 mo; 0.22 6 mo; 0.26 yr
AHI: 12.6 day;16.3 wk; 16.1 mo; 16.7 6 mo; 17.3 yr
AI: 0.7 day; 1.7 wk; 1.7 mo; 2.2 6 mo; 2.9 yr
HI: 11.9 day; 13.6 wk; 14.0 mo; 14.4 6 mo14.3 yr
Do these data suggest that I am getting the full benefit of my machine? BTW I will be calling my doctor this morning.
Input is most welcome.
