new user question about my numbers
#51
RE: new user question about my numbers
I was looking at your most recent charts. One has a minimum at 6.6 (Resmed) and the other has 8.5 as minimum pressure. I was mainly looking at the Resmed chart and the need to increase pressure indicated by that chart. 9.0 looks good to me as a minimum pressure for either machine. Part of my comment was a complaint, that it is very hard to get a complete picture of your therapy with the resolution you are using for a screen-shot. It is barely VGA with a height of 646 px and width of 1076 px. I guess I'm spoiled using a screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 on my own computer.

RE: new user question about my numbers
I'm sorry.  You've been very helpful and I'm doing the best I can. 

On another note, I still have a sore throat somewhat for most of the day.  I've had a sore throat for 6 months.  It's all in my first post.  I was hoping the machine would help.  Anyway, I might post this on a different thread.  I think that's how it works.

Anyway, these shots are the best I can do.  This is from my dreamstation

RE: new user question about my numbers
That is a major improvement in the charts! I didn't mean to pick on you, but it's really hard to try to get a full-picture of therapy, when most of is is not included. That resolved the left side. Do the same to the right side and you can fit several more charts. I know this is off-topic, but what did you do to accomplish the greater area for your graphs? I'm thinking of adding this to the wiki for Organizing charts.

I think posting about your chronic sore throat in a separate thread might be a good idea. It sounds like it is unrelated to the CPAP therapy itself. Have you considered it might be post-nasal drip? If so, I found Flonase gave me good long-term relief without the rebound of other nasal medications. Anyway, PND is a common cause for sore throat, and it can be a problem with CPAP.

RE: new user question about my numbers
What did I do to make greater area for my graphs? You mean how only 3 rows fit on the page? That's just how it is.  I can't figure out how to make all the rows FIT on one page. Do you know how I can get all the charts to fit on one page?  I see other people's posts and all the graphs are on one page.  Is that what you mean? If not, let me know.

I took pics of the right side of graph.

Can you tell anything by this?

The sore throat.  I don't know. But it is very frustrating.  I've had it for 6 months. I've had a CAT scan of my neck and endoscopy. Then I had sleep study.  I have read that apneas can cause contents of your stomach acid to come up into your throat and make your throat sore.  I don't know.

Let's try this for your graphs. While looking at a Daily Chart view, go to File/Preference/Appearance in the menu. You will see a graph height number. Decrease the value of that setting until 4 or 5 charts are visible. Let me know what you started with and ended with.

RE: new user question about my numbers
Graphs went kind of crazy.  Trying to send.

Computer will let me "choose file" and I find it and it shows up on oscar but the "attach" which is usually on the left is not there.  Oh well, I will try later.

Thanks for your help.  I really appreciate it.  Now I have to decide if I want to confront the lady at the medical supply place about switching out to a Resmed.  I hate confrontation, but sometimes I guess it has to happen.

Will post as to what I decided to do.

Not so good. I just wanted to see what your results would be if you did decrease graph height. The fonts' don't work and lots of problems. Thanks for playing.

RE: new user question about my numbers
Now I'm trying to get the chart to go back to what it was and it won't. but hopefully I'll figure it out. I was able to trade out and get the ResMed airsense 10. I need to change my profile. The settings I put on it were maximum 12 minimum five humidity three

Pen, I think you should setup the new Autoset with minimum pressure 7.0, maximum pressure 12.0, EPR full-time, EPR 3. You will need the minimum pressure to create the 7/4 pressure (inhale/exhale), and to start in your therapeutic window. I'm sure it will work much better.
