your sleep report, does it show anything about what pressure they started you out on and what pressures they tried you on throughout your study? It could be the graphs you are talking about. Should show how many AHI's you had, the type of events you had, how long you were in various sleep stages, what your O2 was, etc.

Thanks Paul and me50, I have had a look and it doesn't show any kind of AHI, H, CA, OA's. I have found out it is from a program at AASM.
I have been on a few of their sites and it is just too confusing. I will wait until next week now until I go and get my machine.
To tell you the truth, I am just so over it all. It has been going on so long, my nights and days are no fun at all and other things in my life are not too good. I just feel like turning out the light and sleeping right through until the 12th.
I do not know what I would have done without the kind people on this forum to keep me going.
No one else understands how debilitating this sleep apnea makes you feel, they really do not have a clue.
Gabby, whoever gave you that report, call them or if they are close, drive over and ask them for the complete report. I would think that they are required to give you the complete medical record just like they do in the US but I don't know that for sure. One can hope that they have to provide your complete medical records to you. You are almost there. Don't give up now
Gabby perk up, you are almost there. Your pressure of 6 is GREAT! That's nice and low so you should not have a lot of difficulty adapting to cpap. Also it will be much easier to control leaks and you will most likely be able to use nasal pillows or nasal mask. They are more comfortable and less confining that the full face mask.
Also, your machine the Resmed Elite is a good machine. It uses a set pressure, but since your pressure is low, it will be fine. Good thing is that the Elite is fully data capable so you, with the help of this forum, will be able to study everything.
Soon you will be feeling more energetic and healthy. It helps the way you feel about everything.
