Respiratory Rate Question
My normal respiratory rate in Rescan is 16-20. Most nights I spike up into the 30s for a period of time. This normally happens once or maybe twice per night. I am attaching the Rescan output from one night recently where this occurred with a little more amplitude, longer duration, and more occurrences than normal. This is the only night I can remember where these occurrences were this bad.

Does anyone have any idea what this might mean - if anything.

Best regards,

PaytonA

My WAG would be REM sleep, and in that particularly bad episode, a nightmare!

RE: Respiratory Rate Question
Hehe - running in your sleep? Would be curious what your O2 looks like during those periods, and, how long they last? Dream related, or is something going on?

Do you feel differently on the mornings after these occurrences?

RE: Respiratory Rate Question
Need to see your bilevel pressure graph and high rate flow. I have similar rate periods; and when I look at the pressure and rate data, I see a trigger to IPAP that should not have occurred. It probably could be tuned out with the trigger sensitivity or Ti(min) and/or Ti(max.) In my opinion it does not hurt anything. But the approximate 2X normal rate is actually false.

Felt as good as normal. Woke right up and did not feel sluggish at all.

I am using an S8 VPAP Auto 25 in spontaneous mode. IPAP was 20, EPAP was 15. There is no pressure chart and the S8 doesn't give a high rate flow chart.

The trigger sensitivity is set to med and Ti(max) and Ti(min) are set to factory defaults-2.0 and 0.3 seconds respectively. If I remember correctly, I woke up that morning with the VPAP cycling fairly rapidly and continuously from IPAP to EPAP and it would not follow my breath. I could breathe faster or slower than the machine but it kept up its same cyclic rate.

Best Regards,

PaytonA

RE: Respiratory Rate Question
Example of double trigger. A one minute slice just before local midnight. The little "hitch" in flow triggers IPAP and doubles the scored BPM (BPM not shown.)
