[Treatment] awful results

RE: awful results
This looks like you are tucking your chin multiple times thru the night. Are you using a soft cervical collar? If not you might want to try one. I think that may be causing the bulk of your obstructive events.

RE: awful results
I bought one.  But I didn't try it yet, I barely can sleep with the mask on.  But as soon as I am more comfortable with the mask I'll put it on.  I see the bulks of events and I am confident that the collar will help.  So other than that does my flow number is alright so I can stay at pressure 9? Do you think so?

thank you,
Sabee

RE: awful results
if you didn't have centrals I would try to bump the 9 up. The Collar, loose-fitting, I think will be better therapeutically for you. I don't like throwing additional encumberments (collar here) at anyone unless I feel it will cause sufficient improvement to make it worthwhile. With Centrals we don't have the freedom to just jack the pressure up to kill obstructive events.

RE: awful results
Thank you so much for all the answers you give and for the explanations. That helps. A lot. I would have given up again without AB. Thank you. I will work to get used to the collar.
