So, I tried to educate myself as much as I could in a short time. I bought an S9 and full face mask. First night I used it made it a little intimidating but in my position I decided I was going to use self control and get through using it that night. I used it almost 8 hours.Very little leakage. AHI of 2.18. I woke up yesterday feeling like a beast! I was not tired and groggy, no headache and thought I had found the fountain of youth and could not wait to get hooked up last night.
Last night all was good until about 2 a.m. I woke up and the pressure was feeling high and the mask was leaking around the edge with any movement at all and you guessed it, that panic feeling and the onset of an attack. I tried to stay with it and could not get it under control but gave up and took the mask off. After getting things back under control I got a couple more hours of sleep without the mask.
Now before you get the wrong idea, I am not trying to bypass the pros and their help. I am going to get the study and all of the things that are involved. Due to the scheduling wait I am just trying to make it to that point.
This is where you guys come in. I have used Sleepyhead and ResScan to look at data from the two nights. Right around 2:00 a.m. the graphs and data show a "skip" nothing recorded or showing for a few minutes around the time where the event happened. I know the machine was running and recording. I was hoping that maybe some of the experts on here could give me ideas as to what happens when the data looks that way. Since this is the 2nd time I have looked at anything like this EVER means I may be missing the cause. Any hekp you could throw out is appreciated.
