Hi green wings,
I don't see any reason for concern.
Your inhalations (he positive portions of the Flow waveform) look very slightly Flow Limited to me, but if you were still awake I'm not sure this has any significance.
Your exhales (negative portions) look more gradual than usual, linearly decreasing in Flow until the end of exhalation, but perhaps that has no significance, either.
During the APAP trial, what is the pressure range set to?
Can you show the Presure or Mask Pressure chart, so we can see whether the machine is ever adjusting the pressure?
Actually, I think your Flow waveform looks a lot like the "normal" waveform shown here:
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.
