I'm disappointed that you've so quickly dismissed my finding simply because you've never heard of it before.
you don,t need to be disappointed, you posted in public forum and we all see things differently
for me when coconut is mentioned, food come to mind .. hence the coconut macaroon picture

to make an educated guess, one need to know the statistics and take a look at the detailed data

please see case study 1, 2, and 3 of Resscan Report Interpretation Guide

PaulaO2,

Thanks for your explanation. I never understood the importance of the flow rate.

From what I've heard and read, my average of 10 CSA's per night is much less than what many other people have. I've grateful for that, however, it's not zero.

Your problem set up (keeping everything the same and keeping complete notes) is exactly what I'm concerned about. I can't do a perfect job unless I kept a journal of everything I did and why. That's not going to happen.

The only practical answer to my problem is to identify the top 4 or 5 of the possible contributing factors and include them in the study. You mentioned a few and I will see how they can be included. If other factors come to mind, please pass them on to me.

Short of doing a perfect job, I'm faced with either discontinuing the study or accepting incomplete results. My results are real and I will be continuing the study of comparing the level of fats in my evening meal to the number of CSA's. That means that, while my results will be incomplete, I will be sleeping better.

Greetings, cruzer43--I believe Paula's explanation hit a number of factors that can and apparently do influence our sleep each night and which are reflected in our machine's reporting numbers. Each morning, before I put the Autoset back in its case, I look at the statistics available on the machine's screen. I never know beforehand what I'm going to see for the just-ended night's sleep. Pressure, AI, AHI, Central, Leakage can all be different than they were the night before. So, I'd question your (or anyone's) ability to correctly include the top 4 or 5 of the possible contributing factors in a study (while excluding the unknown others). My guess is that something like mental state is simply too complex to categorize. Plus, I'm sure it has much to do with our subconscious. However, your being able to sleep better by completing the study is certainly a very desirable result. So, go for it and good luck!

I can see how perhaps it would make you sleep deeper since you are fuller. Or it would perhaps make you sleep lighter because you are fuller or indigestion. But those factors would add more obstructive events, not more central events.

Unless I'm missing something, I don't believe he is suggesting the fatty meal is affecting his lung/heart O2/CO2 exchange. Rather, he's postulating that it's impacting his brain function (in a positive way) and resulting in less CAs.

I don't think he's trying to convince anyone to go buy virgin coconut oil, but it's an interesting observation. I appreciate him sharing it with the forum!
