What a difference a month makes, I'm 7 weeks into CPAP and my numbers and breathing patterns are stabilizing around 15, with an OK AHI. It was bouncing around 20 cm with lots of messy stuff. I thought I'd be moving to bipap.

I read here that the results when you first start can get better over time, it was a very true statement.

Great results! Even at your pressures your leaks are very low and the treatment is obviously working. How have you been feeling? Can you tell the difference in energy and alertness?

I wouldn't say a lot of difference in my general stuff yet, I'm not bouncing with energy, as some seem to do. I have stopped having afternoon sleeps, which is a big plus

I'd say not needing afternoon naps is a big improvement! Good job!

No afternoon naps is a big improvement. Everybody adjusts differently to xPAP therapy and we all have varying degrees of slept debt to pay back. Continue the good work and I'm confident you will get to the point where you notice a major difference in how you feel.

Yes, I'm happy the way my results are going. I'm use to the pressures now, to the point when I wake during the night, I lift the mask to make sure it's on

he went for a sleep test and it came back OK. It was PLMD jerks that stopped his breathing and was arousing him. the machine saw something and marked it as an event. He also has CVD and such, so that throws his breathing out too.

He has been prescribed a parkinson drug for the PLMD, but one of his other meds can aggravate it. So we stopped that and letting his system clear, it is reducing in severity, now that I know what to look for. He's 95 and we try to keep the meds to essentials only. He's seeing the sleep dr soon for a review. I'm going to do a full night on the cpap and see how he is now, before the appointment.
