Sleep Study

I'd ask for the more detailed charts. They will be more detailed than oscar. I find it hard to see an excuse for a lab having a leaky mask that interfered with testing. Normally they would wake you up and fix it.

Your oscar chart shows how bad they messed up, even with your still leaky mask. Does your doctor work with the lab, why else would he send people there? This the first time I've seen, what I would call an inadequate study.

Thank you ajack
Yes the doctor is from the sleep center at the hospital, not sure what PLMD is, the doctor told me that I didn’t sleep enough to accurately do the study, but, he said they went by my (not exactly sure what he said now) heart, breathing monitors.
I did wake up one time and the technician was adjusting the mask, I didn’t sleep well that night because she was in and out of my room, seemed like it was all night in and out.

Read up on it, It can be a problem that needs fixing. I take lyrica for it.

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.
