RE: So here's the thing
My next visit with the doc is in a few days. I'm going to wait to discuss that with her but I agree with the consensus that the pressure does need to be raised.

Keep us posted. That is certainly reasonable, but you could sleep better tonight. Smile

RE: So here's the thing
Last night was a 7.3 according to MyAir. I haven't pulled the card yet to check it in detail. I think I'm going to move ahead with the FlashAir purchase. If not for the cool factor then to satisfy my lazy side.

RE: So here's the thing
I'm right in the school of thought that your pressure needs increased. When I went for my sleep study I was prescribed a pressure of 11. Well, I set my machine to auto from 10-16, and found my best pressure is around 14. I'd check with the doc, and if they don't budge, I'd change it myself.

RE: So here's the thing
Alan, on the graph you posted a few pages ago, you have a bunch of events early (21:20 to 22:30). Were you by chance talking to your wife with the mask on then? As a reminder, the machine will always think you are "sleeping" when it is turned on. It doesn't know to stop monitoring during conversations or discussions back and forth that a couple may have while getting ready for sleep. That might explain that long first period at max.

I made the mistake of just moving my mask aside when talking and blocking the ports. The machine thought something MAJOR was happening and cranked up the pressure to max. I got a blast or air in the face when I put it back on a few minutes later. So, now I use the off button during a chat. I usually ignore the first 30 mins of data because I'm not asleep yet.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

That was weird for it to crank right up to max so early but I was sleeping. I am one of those that can fall asleep within minutes of my head hitting the pillow. Probably from being thoroughly exhausted by bed time.

Maybe the wife was choking me with the force while I was sleeping? [Image: darth-vader.gif]

Hahaha, being a female, I am tempted to say if she feels the need to choke you it is probably justified? Because us women are always angelic, you know! LOL!

Now on a serious note. The day I was issued my machine the Dr. wanted to set me up at 5-9 pressure so that the transition would be easier. I could not not breath at 5 in his office while testing the machine. The titration study had recommended a range of 7-11 so they adjusted the settings to 7-11. It was not perfect but it worked. Unfortunately for them any AHI below 5 is good. But I know my sleep was better when it is under 1. (I played around with setting it at 6-12, 7.6-12) The min 7.6 max 12 has been working wonders for me. My CA's disappeared. Before that, I had noticed on Sleepyhead that I was touching max pressure of 11 and then increased the maximum pressure to 12. It has been in the 0.0 to 0.5 range ever since.

Now, when I turn airplane off once a week so my provider can get the readings, I have noticed that the settings revert back to 7-11 and it shows a FFM, so I turn airplane mode back on, reset the settings to 7.6 to 12 and mask to nasal and I am all set. My follow-up appt. is not until September, but right now sleep is great!

Hope the above helps. Good luck to you. Ah, and remember: "Wives are always right even when they are wrong!" Wink
