full nights sleep
In 2 days it will be 3 months on cpap, and still can't get a full nights sleep. I sleep for 3 hours, then see every hour on the alarm till about an hour before I have to get up, then it feels like I could sleep for hours.
In my sleep study my low oxygen was 72, so I know I am doing my body good by doing this, but just want a full nights sleep sometime.
I have played with pressure settings and found 13 to be the best. My Ahi's are usually under .5
I seem to have most of my apneas in the first hour of sleep, and practically none the rest od the night. Is this normal?

RE: full nights sleep
sounds like sleep wake junk in the first hour can you post a sleepy head report. You should get some good analysis if you post your stats

RE: full nights sleep
What mask are you using and is it comfortable? What about your leak rate? It's really important to get the right mask.

Same for me, got a nasal mask instead of full face, no better, changed settings on machine, no better.

Intending to get an appointment with specialist, maybe another *******
diagnosis along with the three previous ones.

I had little problem sleeping before this performance.

You have my sympathy.
