The sleep wake junk is interesting. Last night I took the mask off and stopped the machine for my usual constitutional after 6 lovely uninterrupted hours of sleep, came back to bed and put the mask back on and once again the pressure immediately went way up. I felt like I was choking. After 10 minutes of this I took it off and decided to wait for 30 minutes then let the machine reset itself. I've done this before and it works with the Icon. Anyway, during that time I fell asleep so never got to go back on APAP.
My AHI for last night was 13.4 but if I take out the 10 minutes that I used after turning the machine on after the bathroom stop then my AHI reads as 5.00. (A pity that the next two hours of non APAP sleep stuffed up all the good work that the machine had done).
So the question is, how do I get rid of this meaningless sleep/wake junk? Why does my machine cycle straight up to close to max pressure the moment I put it back on?
I'm hopefully getting a loaner Resmed S9 very soon so maybe this will change and my data will be far more accurate. I see my GP tomorrow and I'm hoping he will write me a new script to enable me to get the Resmed.
No one grades your reports. You know what is real and what to count, and that is all that matters. The software is just a tool to help you optimize. You don't get reward points or win anything by being perfect, and no one will think less of you for bad results. AFAIK the data cannot be edited.
Dear Holden4th - the ICON does have a ramp feature. So that if pressed the pressure will gradually increase. When I used the IKON I thought that I was sensitive to the SensAwake feature and turned that off. I did have two good nights sleep before an overseas trip and more jet lag - I then switched to a PR machine.
Thanks for the feedback. The ramp feature is on but only seems to work at the beginning of the night. It starts at 8.00.
This is all relative now as I've got an APAP prescription from my GP and a loaner coming from the rental company. If this works out then I'll return the loaner at the end of the contract and buy from the US as xPAP machines are so expensive here in Australia.
Every day I feel that I'm making that little bit of progress. Eight hours sleep last night with a brief 10 minute break for the toilet and this time I was not awake before the alarm. I hope the figures reflect this when I check them tonight
