It shouldn't be a surprise. He's seen my chart. I've mentioned it. Thinking-about
I run an ancient Mac Pro. It can't run OSCAR, but SleepyHead works. Thanks to everyone who helps us get a better night's sleep.

Once positional is treated or if you are having trouble doing so it might be worth a trial without the guards to see if they make any difference on cpap data.

My mouth guards are separate and free-floating -- my jaw is free to move.
The only reason I have two is that the grinding is very severe. The upper
one has grooves in it. So the lower one was added.

I could leave them out, but the grinding (and I suspect clenching) would
keep me awake!

Just figured I would mention it since you didn't have it noted. I have bruxism myself but am more of a clencher. Funny enough I just saw a specialist about it today, they want to start me on a hard acrylic mouth guard and then if I fail that (I failed an over the counter soft guard already) they will try botox.

I assume your level of apnea plays a role in your bruxism and grinding (since bruxism is primarily a symptom of arousal in people predisposed to it).
