Sleep apnea test (study) help?
#11
I think you understand what's going on here. No one can dial you in as well as using an APAP machine, and understanding the data it produces. Your sleep position, sleep stage, health and other factors change constantly. The fact they can minimize events for 20 minutes in a study means nothing in the context of using the machine for years. Refuse the test, get the prescription for an auto.

Quick question, did your studies say anything about complex apnea, or Central Apnea?

If so please provide all the details.  If you have it provide the study details anyway.
Central and complex apnea are an area where the additional study may help.  All those additional wires help to understand those issues.
