To me misinformation is something that's created in attempt to lead or mislead people into thinking or doing something.

Hi Sleepster,

Misinformation (which I consider to be merely incorrect information) which happens to be "intentionally meant to mislead" is what I call "disinformation" rather than merely misinformation.

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.

Webster's says that misinformation is information that is incorrect. Does not distinguish between purposeful or accidental false information. Disinformation however is defined as: misinformation that is deliberately disseminated in order to influence or confuse rivals (foreign enemies or business competitors etc.)

RE: Query on higher pressure
This morning I made an attempt to split off the misinformation discussion in this thread to a new thread in the off topic forum. Couldn't do it though because it's all twisted up with the 95th percentile discussion.

Maybe I'll just take a break and run off somewhere with a dictionary and my college statistics textbook. Oh-jeez

RE: Query on higher pressure
Well, my eyes glazed over reading all of that, so forgive me if I missed something.

I find I feel better if I raise my minimum pressure a bit above where my AHI is essentially zero. I'm guessing that something like UARS, flow limitations, reflux, etc. is happening when I'm in the "just below AHI

I find that most of my centrals seem to happen when my lungs are empty. i.e. I exhale and then don't breathe for a while. My obstructives happen when my lungs are full, i.e. at the end of an inhale. I don't know how common this is.

I'm interested in the Breas data and software. Does it show airflow waveforms? I haven't seen a good writeup on it. Maybe you could start a thread on that, Visitor.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.

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

it means that visitors thread got hijacked by someone else asking about their 95% number, without providing any more info, and then ... things wandered.

How does a thread get hijacked when the OP posts once and never returns?
