Hi everyone. Had sleep problems for many years blamed on nocturnal asthma, I have had asthma for 20+ years, I am 60 years old. Diagnosed with mild sleep apnoea earlier this year. Got my loan machine Resmes S9 Autoset on 27/7/15 and have just completed 32 days averaging over 8.35 hours per night . I gave it my best shot, I was diagnosed with exhaustion and was feeling suicidal and dreading going to bed every night. Thanks so much for Sleepyhead I could really understand what is going on every night. My worst night was AHI of 14.2 and last night was AHI of 0.3. AHI has been dropping slowly over the time and I am feeling so much better. Had a few hitches with cold air, got hose covers and a sore nose, jury's out on that one, have tried mask liner and CPAP cream, will see what the Sleep Clinic says. All in all a great improvement, will see what the Sleep Clinic does next week... Just hang on in there peeps, it's worth it!
I'm new here, just 15 days into using my machine. I'm compliant, over 8 hrs. Of sleep a night this entire time. I just downloaded and installed Sleepyhead a few days ago. I am also looking at the MyAir website daily. I've enjoyed this forum so much, and learned so much! Just tonight found out about the clinicians setting to see AHI. As an aside, on the clinician screen and on MyAir my report for last night were both the same, just dumbed down on MyAir being called events. I can't make heads or tails out of Sleepyhead, but will try.
My biggest misunderstanding (confusion) comes understanding data like this: I have a horrible night, up and down multiple times, wake feeling like a truck ran me down, yawning, exhausted, etc. and the AHI is 2.1. Then on a different night, I sleep like the dead, no potty trips, wake up feeling good comparatively and my AHI is 3.3. What is the logic here?
I know my numbers are still low, but I'm confused!
Hopefully after I'm more familiar with Sleepyhead, I will be able to interpret someon this myself. Never to old to learn new tricks.
