Have you tried eBay? Sorts

I have way more CA events than anything else so hoping when I go back to my doctor on the 29th she can tell me something that will get those and my AHI down.
Ouch! I wish I could give advice like I've been getting but I would be guessing and that wouldn't be fair to you. Did you just start your therapy?

Encouraging part of your charts is that 7-15 is effective even if not optimal. It is good, and will result in you getting better.

You'll notice some pressure spikes are higher than others for the same number of events (and in some cases even without events). This is because there are non-events that the machine is sensitive to, and the adjustments are because it noticed those things happening, too. Look in particular at the timeframe of 11 to 11:30 pm on 5/12. There was definite pressure adjustment going on, but no events logged.

One example is flow limitations that can indicate restricted airway.

At any rate, the two charts I've seen indicate that a lot of the night you remain stable in the 7-8 range. We have seen others that just continue to top out over and over throughout the night. You do not need to rush to shift to a higher minimum pressure.

Have a great day!

Thanks. If I have good nights like last night I probably won't change anything for awhile. Last night was the best #-wise ever with a 0.96. I also feel better than usual. We'll see if that lasts the day though. It might have been the relief of having the house air conditioning again and not the sound of the annoying window unit blasting all night.

Bloody marvellous, I think! Well done, Alan!
#36
Thank you sir and thanks to those who took the time to look at my charts and make suggestions. Smile

Good job Alan. I think the only thing you'll want to change now is your mask when it comes time for you to be assimilated into the P10 group.

Other than that? Looking great!

Mornincoffee Annoying thing happened last night. I woke up around 2:45 to my nose pillows going left right blowing air all over. I guess my machine sensed something and jumped the pressure. Nothing showed on the chart though? Loco

I couldn't get the pillows to seal with that pressure so I tore off the mask and went and got a glass of water. Dodgy

I've read through the entire thread and found one important item not mentioned, unless I skipped over it.

What was the optimal (necessarily fixed) pressure as a result of the titration study?

I ask this question because there was at least an implied oximetry 02 sats/desats issue raised by the OP.


#40
I don't have the full report from the titration. Just the interpretation from the initial sleep study.

My pre-sleep study (overnight oximetry) showed my O2 dropping below 89% for 25% of the time.

For the PSG the O2 was not that terrible at all:
The average SaO2 was 97%. Average desaturation was 4%
Lowest desaturation was 88%
Length of time below 89% 0.6 minutes.
