[Treatment] APAP for 1 year but no relief
#1
APAP for 1 year but no relief
Hi I am new to this forum and I am looking for help with adjusting my APAP settings to hopefully get some relief. 

I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea last year and have been using the Dream Station since then with only a few minor changes to try to find relief as I still experience exhaustion, brain fog, etc. 

I just downloaded OSCAR and need some help interpreting my data. 


   

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum.

Pretty good but your min pressure is too low.  Set your min to 7 to get a better start on events.  

You also have enough centrals to keep an eye on them  

Re-evaluate tomorrow.

Welcome to the forum, it’s likely the CA’s will reduce if you reduce the flex to 1, I agree with Bonjour an increase of the minimum pressure will help to reduce the number of OA’s

Do you have a guess about when you fell asleep?

Here's last night's data 

I changed min pressure to 7. 

Also could you further explain what you mean by enough central apneas?

Thanks! 

   

Probably 30 minutes after 10pm is my guess.
