Would love some feedback on OSCAR data

RE: Would love some feedback on OSCAR data
I have tried a few nights of "EPR - 1" along with a much better fitting soft cervical collar, is it making any difference?

The EPR = 1 looks better. Why are you not using more EPR?

RE: Would love some feedback on OSCAR data
On the night of the 31st around 04:40am there is about a 22 or 23 minute period where you racked up several Large Leaks, maybe 9ea Unclassified Apnea and an Obstructive Apnea, did you possibly get up for a break or were you fighting with your mask?

I used to let the machine run when I got up, even though my intentions were to go right back to bed, sometimes it ran longer. That torsion I put in the frame kept the air from free flow, but racked up a lot of events.

I try to turn off the machine before I remove the mask and then turn it on after I have the mask back on and strapped down. It saves some unwarranted events that distract from my desired AHI.

Just used what was default, tried epr 2 last night and will try 3 tonight. I looked at the flow limitations wiki page and I don't see much change in the shape, is that what i'm looking for?
EPR 2 attached
       

Edit: I just realised in having re-read the thread that SleepRider already told me to use EPR 3 some time ago, my apologies. I'm also going to up the min pressure to 11.0 as was also recommended earlier in the thread which I somehow also missed Sad

I don't remember even waking up, but it was likely a 'woke up to scratch nose and fell back asleep before putting mask back on', one of the unforeseen positives of PAP for me is that I haven't woken up to go to the loo or been inconvenienced by a mask once since beginning therapy some months ago.

I think those earlier recommendations are still valid to help reduce flow limitations, fluctuating pressure and further reduce events. This is an improvement. Good luck!

RE: Would love some feedback on OSCAR data
Update: I think i'm sleeping a bit better while asleep, but seem to be waking up more often. Will need to sew some velcro onto the collar as its just that bit too short to be comfortable while also staying stuck.

Any thoughts on the previous days, anything I should be changing?

Update: Doesn't seem to be much improvement from what I can see, or feel Sad I'm needing more pressure, flow limitations have gone up, this is with the cervical collar being normalised now.

I guess i'm at my limit

I would raise the min to 13 and see if that helps.
