RE: Rice95 Therapy
Thank you Opal! Thank you Dave!

For the Leak Rate, what is considered acceptable? The last 2 days it has ironically been 14 considering I stopped the big leaks that awaken me like leaks at the side of the mouth.  Leaks are typically around 8. Maybe I got excited too soon lol
CA and OA decided to call HYOP and the 3 of them crashed RERA's place, and then the 4 of them decided to call Large Leak to meet in an Unclassified location while Rice95 had the best night of his life.

RE: Rice95 Therapy
If the best you can get is a controlled 14, meaning it's not jumping above that, it could be ok. A little better consistently might be a good idea. Leaks may disrupt your sleep.

Even at 14, your 10 points below the redline.

Good Morning! Coffee


I  tightened the head gear straps a little more to fix the leaks to get the leak rate down. 

Leak Rate is now down to an acceptable level. I remember Dave saying once consistently below 8 is ok , and that you feel rested. 

I feel rested and I feel the leaks are not disruptive as far as I can tell. I don't remember being awakened. I guess you can study things too much and get too wrapped up in it. My AHI has been consistently below 1 in the last few weeks. Today was the highest in a while at 1.12. I'm averaging 7 hours a night which is my target so I feel I am doing fine. I can't imagine what my health was like before I decided to get a sleep study done. The only reason I went was because I snored my wife out of the bed. Now snoring is a distant memory. All I have now is a nightly commitment to my CPAP and experiencing true rest. Yes it is uncomfortable and a pain. There are lots of inconveniences in life. For example,  I'm wearing a night guard for grinding my teeth and that became routine.  There will also be apnea interruptions during the night and no one has perfect sleep every night even with a CPAP, but I have extended my life and I am much more rested than I would have ever been by staying the course.

RE: Rice95 Therapy
All looks great on the OSCAR. You're building a good trend too. Now you'll probably not even need to look at data so much, you'll feel when something strays off normal. Congrats on the win.

Good Saturday Morning! Coffee


I thought I'd give my weekly update. Leaks are down to 0. 
A few positional apneas off and on this past week but nothing extreme. I've been keeping all my Oscar screenshots in a folder.

Since I seem to have solved my positional issues with a lot of blood sweat and tears with Opal and Dave I don't post as much. 


Have a great weekend! Coffee
