Post Sleep Study Questions
#11
Thanks Everybody, I don't have a "Sleep Doctor" this go around and the last one I saw that claimed to be one did not seem very knowledgeable. So I have to work with my Primary care doctor. I'll be calling them today, it sounds like I need to have them request the full sleep study on disc if they did not already do so.

It will help you get an APAP if the script specifies a pressure range, even a small one. They can't legally fill that prescription with a manual CPAP, and you don't have the insurance problems that you might get with "dispense as written."

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Thanks Archangle, I do want an auto and having the Pri Physician write a range makes sense.

Are you staying with the Swift FX? That's what I have now and really like it. But I was thinking of going with the AirFit P10, I'm not sure that I like the fact that the straps aren't adjustable.
