You have definitely come to the right conclusion. Congratulations on your steps toward mastery. It goes back to the old saw-
How do you eat an elephant??
Answer: One bite at a time!
Keep on taking bites out of this elephant.
It took me about 3 years to get where I am now. A large part of that time, I thought that I had mastered the process. Then I got on this forum and found out about the data that was available. It then took me some time to come up with the specific data card and reader that i needed for my old S8 machine. Once I started looking at the data I found that I had major mask leaks. Got a different mask. Fixed the leaks. Tweaking and experimenting with this and that and finally not long ago got to a place that I felt good about. My AHI was not as low as some others but it was consistently below 5.0 and my leaks were good.
I hope that this does not sound discouraging to you. It is meant to be encouraging. You have found this forum more quickly than I did and you are moving forward. That is absolutely great.
Thanks, guys --- I really needed a pat on the back, LOL.
It's a s-l-o-w process, isn't it!
Do I need to see the sleep doc about changing the pressure again, or should I just give the current pressure more time? I am on 15/5 and it's on the auto mode.
I don't think you will need to change the top end right now Clem. But I do think it would be well to "close" the gap a little by raising the minimum up to around 7 or so.
But you're doing really great! Good job!
Hey Clementine congrats! 6 Months or so for me. I know just how you feel, it's a journey. There will be forward and backwards just keep moving along as forward as you can and don't quit.
Oh yah don't eat any elephants either, yucky, lol.
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.
