[Pressure] Sudden elevated AHI. HELP!!!!
#31
RE: Sudden elevated AHI. HELP!!!!
Here are the screenshots you asked about.


My AHI have been stable lately. But i get mild fluctuations. Though its nowhere under 1 like many users have.

I don't know why yesterday night data is not there. I just updated the data from SD card. Will have to investigate it.

RE: Sudden elevated AHI. HELP!!!!
Thanks!

1) I guess you are using Cflex 1 or 2 right now ?

2) Out of all the "Changes to prescription settings" tab, do you recall what was the AFlex / CFlex / none for each one ?
As in, do you recall if your flex settings was either none or CFlex 1 in this situation:
- From the 23rd may to 27th may (5 nights)
- From the 9th June till 19th june (11 nights)
I just would like to check if there is a correlation between high AHI and no flex or CFlex 1 used

3) I would increase your minimum pressure to 9.0, and try AFlex 1

RE: Sudden elevated AHI. HELP!!!!
I was on C flex 1 during the times you mentioned. As i said, I have rarely used A Flex after sleep rider suggested C flex. 

That being said, yesterday i slept with a-flex 1 and min pressure 9 and max 17. I had AHI of 5 but it was the worst sleep I had in a very long time. I woke up multiple times.

Though I highly suspect it was due to the disturbing nature of dreams I saw. So i will sleep with the same settings tonight and again see the results.


No flex really makes exhalation difficult at high pressures and leads to multiple wakings. I can easily bear no flex upto a pressure of 10 but above that its very difficult.

Haha AWESOME! Vivid dreams, they look quite real, right?

Not nightmare, but weird, is it?

I guess that means this actually was a pretty good night. No joke! That happens to me for my first month under CPAP. Woke up 4 or 5 times per night, I guess during every REM sleep!

I could have written a book :-)

Continue with these settings, you are on a pretty good track!

RE: Sudden elevated AHI. HELP!!!!
I have slept for 4.4 hours right now and have been struggling to sleep since the past 30 mins or so. I am feeling shortness of breath right now and AHI fpr last 4.4 hours is 7.7.


I dontd think this A flex is working for me at all. God..
