Question re: SleepyHead data pattern
#1
I am starting the get AHI's of 10+. Can someone interpret this screen shot?

My pressures are EPAP min 9 and max 9; Pressure min. 4 max 11 Resmed BIPAP ASV on ASV a auto.

Are these several events due to mask leak? Sometimes my tubing gets unhooked from my mask. Will that do it. Last night I had AHI of 1.6 and the tubing got disconnected one time briefly.

Also, what do the Hours? numbers mean at the bottom of the charts. They Why don't they start at 11:00pm when I go to bed? Thanks for your help.

I just noticed that I exceeded my attachment allotment. What is that all about?

the masks leaks aren't bad.

your epap is too low, perhaps you should allow the autoasv to do the auto part and raise the maxepap.

the numbers on the bottom are the time, check the clock on your asv.

also, the sleepyhead 1.0.0beta1 does a better job of reporting aircurve data, you might want to grab a copy of that.

I raised my EPAP max to 11 and fixed my clock. Thanks for the feedback.

Unfortunately, with this raised pressure, I am experiencing major mask leaks - mostly at the end of my sleep period as you can see. The pressure seems to build up after 6 or seven breaths and then blows hard causing it to override the mask.

Please look at this latest Sleepyhead data. Thanks.

My sleep Dr. said to change the ASV Auto setting to ASV. What's the difference?

the leaks aren't terrible, are they bothering you?

asvauto lets the machine respond to your needs by raising epap to prevent obstructive apneas, asv mode has fixed epap. it's the difference in a cpap and an apap.
