[Treatment] Treating UARS with CPAP and bilevel
RE: UARS and APAP
Attaching a redacted copy of the two summary pages.

I omitted the hypnogram in the graph post above, and the empty OA and H sections. Are those helpful to add back here?

There's no other mention of arousals beyond that graph, except a comment on the summary that I had a lot of them that screwed up the EEG.

Oops; technical problems. Removing for now.

Any thoughts on why that might be? Seems counter-intuitive to me based on everything I've read.

No idea. It may be a coincidence though. You didn't sleep on your right side for a long time

By the way, you really didn't spend a lot of time in deep sleep (N3). No wonder you feel tired even though your AHI is close to 0.

Got my Dreem headband today, so can now track this over time!

I guess at 50, N3 should be what; 15-20%?

Problems solved. Attaching here.

Correction on the arousals point. It does distinguish spontaneous arousals vs RERAs.

RE: UARS and APAP
Getting a lot of reported clear airway events again, but almost all correspond to periods of wide TV fluctuation, and while awake, so I'm thinking they're not centrals.

What about these two examples? Neither centrals?

RE: UARS and APAP
No central here, in my opinion....just artefacts following arousals/awakenigs.

good luck

RE: UARS and APAP
Two nights with the Dreem is beginning to show a pattern that my awakenings correspond to (with one minor exception) REM stage. If this pattern holds, it's good to know, though not sure what to do about, other than to give it time?

Any other ideas?

RE: UARS and APAP
IMHO the first one is not a central, note the larger breath following the event. At the very least it is questionable.

The second is a Central note the rapid breathing prior to the event. That would flush the CO2 out of the system. Chemoreceptors use the pCO2 of the blood as the main driver for breathing. This is one of the known causes of Central apnea

Be aware that Central apnea can and does occur during both asleep and awake states. Because when it occurs when we are awake does not make it non-apnea, it only means that we in general don't care about it because it's not Sleep Apnea.
