Waking up with heavy rapid breathing.

Interesting that you had higher tidal volume, with a lower pressure support. That is not what I normally expect. Anyway, you can ignore these idle musings and just enjoy a good night's sleep. There is nothing wrong with your results at the settings you started with, or for that matter these modified ones with higher PS. Keep up the good work. If the current setting results don't improve, I think just go back to the previous setting after a couple nights.

If you want to see some of the fluctuations in tidal volume or any other data, you can change the minimums and maximums on any graph (Y axis). For tidal volume, I average about 500ml per breath; so I set my min at 300 and max at 800. This does not change the treatment, but only how it is charted.

For your normal nights, it looks like you average about 330ml, so maybe set your min at 200 and max at 600. When looking at that level you may be able to see differences between times of relative peace and those of rapid breathing.

If you are anything like me, you probably wake up just seconds or minutes after REM sleep - usually with a conscious memory of some details about the dream. Most studies conclude that if you do not waken within 5 minutes after a dream, you'll probably not even remember having dreamt.

questions can be private messaged.
