Rogueshot's Therapy Thread

RE: Rogueshot's Therapy Thread
It's a lot easier to explain a successful result than one that fails. It's really pretty simple, in terms of the lower PS, but your doctor may be completely unaware of the trigger sensitivity. Educate him/her.

RE: Rogueshot's Therapy Thread
Good day all,
I have my meeting this afternoon with the doc. I'll share any feedback I get. 

The patient portal I am required to use to share data is so limited that I basically just shared the screenshots from Oscar. I've asked if they need/want further data. I'm interested to hear their response. It was fun to share last night's data of 0.13 AHI. For all my years being on bipap, never before do I recall a night with just 1 event total...never ever has happened.

Thanks all!

Doc was understanding about tweaks to settings; advice was to stay the course; check back in 6 months. Getting me connected to a supplier so I can try some different masks/chin straps and use insurance to cover.

They did ask if I wanted a new machine that would transmit data using wifi (mine stopped given the 5G change over) but I turned it down as my system works fine and I didn't want to take away a machine from someone in need given all the supply chain issues.

Later.

RE: Rogueshot's Therapy Thread
So an update. All my numbers since changing over to Vauto and to high sensitivity have been under 1.0, which has been great.

But I have this lingering tired feeling in/around my eyes. Like I'm groggy and do have bags under them. It's weird - I don't feel tired but my eyes make it seem like I am.

Any suggestions?

I was reading about possible micro-arrousals but have really no idea. My doc mentioned getting a new mask implying the tight fit I currently do with my mask might might cause the feeling. I'm trying to schedule a time to do that.

RE: Rogueshot's Therapy Thread
Here's my recent results. Given how I can now sleep on any side/back my mask has been slipping and definitely having more leaks as well I noticed I'm drooling more and have periods of a dry mouth/throat. So, I just ordered some lip tape to see how that works. I also still am trying to setup a mtg to try new masks.

But, if any suggestions on tweaking of settings to get me to feel more rested are appreciated. 

Take care.

RE: Rogueshot's Therapy Thread
Looks fine to me, but I'm kind of nonchalant about my own results and have not uploaded a SD card since June 4. Your pressure is steady, event rate is low and you are at the point of just tweaking minor stuff from night to night. I would not worry at all about that leak rate either.
