Testing sleep apnea using the CPAP machine

RE: Testing sleep apnea using the CPAP machine
You missed 2 important charts, flow limits and snores. Your pressure rose, it wouldn't if there are no events.

Your stats for snores and flow limits show something is happening.

How do you feel? I'm not arguing that your AHI is great, but something is going on so how do you feel? And be critical.

RE: Testing sleep apnea using the CPAP machine
surely if you wanted to see what happens without the machine you would set it to min 4 max 4 so it cant increase pressure and then see what the AHI count is, setting the minimum pressure to 4 just means the Resmed has further to go to treat your apnoea but the resmed still goes there as it reacts to Flow limitations and Snores the precursors to Obstructive Apnoea

RE: Testing sleep apnea using the CPAP machine
    Hi, here are a couple more charts, one showing the snore/flow limitations and the other two my flow rates.  There are two distinct different patterns that I experience each night.  I feel better after getting on the CPAP, the mornings are about the same when I get up but I no longer feel drowsy during the day.  As I may have mentioned before I have few and any events during the night so overall the results are good.

RE: Testing sleep apnea using the CPAP machine
You were expiratory mouth breathing for the first half of the night, inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth.

Your charts should always include the following
Events
Flow Rate
Flow Limits
Mask Pressure or Pressure
Leaks
Snores

We will let you know when other charts are needed.

Tks for the analysis, I will start using my chin strap again and see how it works and post an update in a couple days as a follow up.  I will adjust my charts too.  Smile
