[Pressure] Problems with AHI and the VA
#1
need some more help my resmed s9 was set at 5 -15
but was way too much pressure and couldn't use it, dropped
it down to 13.2 and my ahi was 0.0 thought I would start
raising it since my respiratory therapist at the the VA was having a cow
so I raised it back to 14.2 and thought I would raise it slowly
to 15, guess what, i went up to 46.3. After my sleep study
they sent 17 pages of material to the VA they have not had time
to read everything.

1. Be sure to get a full copy of the sleep report, including all data. Don't let them say no, claiming you wouldn't understand it. You have a right to a copy of these reports, for your own records.

2. What model of S9? (Next to the Start button will be written the model name.)

3. What was the breakdown of the AHI: Obstructive Apnea Index, Central Apnea Index, Unknown type Apnea Index (apneas occurring while unintended Leak is greater than 30 Liter/minute), and Hypopnea Index?

4. Instructions on how to post attachments or pictures (for example, a SleepyHead report):

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
