that has some good info in it but there is one post that tells about understanding the stats and graphs in sleepyhead. I will try to find that one when I get some more time.

For now, I am going back to sleep.

RE: noob
updated profile-i have the escape. the escape must be the model A? wont record what i need to know?

interesting to hear others have the same story of finding help.

after 4 ER visits [ for chest pain and all kinds of symptoms] they decided i had nothing wrong. passed the stress test and then had a dye test. the rest in the hospital evidently got me back on track. i did feel better. and am improving. i took drugs for a tick bite as a just in case. but i feel that was not the problem. it all came back to sleep- or lack of. i have an occasional bout of leg trouble that has not happened when i was hooked up.

i have had a few chin straps. some worked a little. i have one homemade one now that works fair to good. i made a strap to go under the bottom straps of the quatro that keeps it from riding up. some help with the leaks with the bottom strap. i tried hard to keep from over tightening but after a year tight is the only way. and the headstrap had to be modified to get it tight enough.

the other mask with the brace that goes up between my eyess and has a brace against my forehead is easy to get tight -again if very loose it leaks real bad too. last night i wore it all night but did not get a headache like the night before.

i slept all night and only awakened a couple times to roll around or turn over. frequently i am awake from 1 to 3am but not last night. still this morning i could lay down and pass out. i took the mask off at 6 am and went back to sleep for 2 hours. it was a good night and i am still a zombie this morning.

RE: noob
It will take you a while to recoup from the exhaustion you have and that obviously caused or contributed to a hospital stay. Stick with it so your body can recover. You most likely have a huge sleep deficit and your organs have probably suffered from it. It takes time to heal just as if you had an injury to a part of your body or you recover from surgery. the worst thing you can do is give up. Have you tried the carefusion chin strap? it is a sturdy one. YOu can look at the product reviews and read others' experience with masks, chin straps and other products.

I've found I have always needed software to show you DAILY usage graphs. I can get basic number of hours from the machine but it doesn't tell me how many hours each day or over how long the hours have been counting.

RE: noob
this is getting weird. after the sleep study last night, [ which was conducted without a cpap] to get another base line. the tech said 'you dont need a cpap'
i had less than five per hour and that is not enough to qualify.

i had to take a bunch of pills to sleep but 'we got to get data and if you dont sleep we wont get any data' no joke -sherlock. thats what i am trying to tell you. i am thinking i should not have taken any meds.
