OSCAR Report on Resperation Levels
#1
OSCAR Report on Resperation Levels
My respiration levels don't usually vary much from 14 to 16 breaths per minute. Recently they have soared to 30 to 60--very irregular up and down levels.  I have noticed I feel an almost pulsing feeling from my Airsense 10 and my pressure for the night is higher than usual.   Have a call in to my cardiologist but haven't heard back yet.  Where do I look for answers?

While you're waiting for your Cardiologist to call back, please post a screenshot of the night in question.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to non apnea products. kardiamobile is inexpensive and very very accurate.

RE: OSCAR Report on Resperation Levels
Didn't figure out how to post a screenshot here but had an Ah Ha moment when thinking about why suddenly the respiration rate went up.  What changed?  remembered I had changed the filter about that time to an AB one--I ran out of the regular ones and used one of my husband's stock--the VA gives them to him 50 at a time.  I did go into the menu and change the AB from off to on at that time.  Put in a regular filter a few days ago, changed the menu back to off and I'm back to my regular respiration rate.   Oh-jeez

The AB filter refers to a filter that fits on the hose and is circular vs the rectangle I think you are talking about.

SideSleeper - Since you are using an AS10, here is an image of an AB filter on it.

What I was using was the regular rectangle-sized one like the standard filters. The package says S9/A10 Hypo. They appear to be a different texture than the regular ones.

Sounds like an off brand filter that is too restrictive.
