WarmHoney3650 (Therapy Thread) Questions
#21
RE: WarmHoney3650 (Therapy Thread) Questions
That is an arousal, but it has no apparent nexus to a respiratory event. Hopefully the night was comfortable otherwise. When we can't connect an arousal or event to an obstructive respiratory issue, we need to shift our focus from modifications to the positive air pressure therapy to other potential causes of sleep disruption. This one has the signature of movement which could be a change in sleep position, physical discomfort, sleep stage or many other reasons. The increase in leaks as movement occurs is part of that. Consider the possibilities of factors external to your CPAP treatment that might impinge on your sleep integrity, and we can talk about it a bit.

I thought the breaths that preceded it look like flow limitations. Could you explain why they're not?

I think the leaks increase because I move due to the arousal, and the mask may move slightly from my face causing the leak.

RE: WarmHoney3650 (Therapy Thread) Questions
I don't see much flow limitation, and I agree with the cause of leaks. If I zoom in to my flow rate and analyze all the disrupted breathing, it looks terrible. That's probably why I last uploaded my data to Oscar on February 12. I don't gauge how I feel or what I do based on looking at graphs anymore. "Normal" breathing is not always pretty, nor is CPAP always a solution to any irregularities you find. It's much more important to look at the big picture and resolve the big issue of obstructed breathing as best as possible. Give the new settings some time to settle in, and if you feel something needs to change, we can try to target a problem. This disturbance is not a problem.

I agree. Getting to the bottom of why my sleep is so poor is like a challenge in and of itself.. in addition to the poor sleep


Looks like this isn't a real respiratory related disturbance

What are some other giveaways that you're looking at a RERA and not an arousal related to something non respiratory?
