ASV constant wake up cannot sleep >1hour help
       
[attachment=65844]
Hello all,
found this forum in the middle of the night last night and have downloaded oscar and am getting familiar with it. Learned more about my machine in the last 12 hours than in the 2 years ive had it, so THANK YOU.
Have complex sleep apnea mostly CSA following a stoke in 2021. I'm 38 and im exhausted. I did the normal trek, Cpap to Biap to ASV and i have an Air curve 10 ASV. I was doing well on it for about a year with just a nasal mask and then something changed early last year and i started to have propblems with pressures and events waking me up. It been a year and several tweaks and mask changes and I'm still having issues. Ive palyed with pressures a little, but no significant improvements. Anyway here is some screen shots of the last three months. Any advice so a girl can ZZZ? Thanks!

Please read the link in my signature “Formatting OSCAR Charts”. We have many here quite well versed in ASV and they can help, but you need to get some charts for them to review.

There should be a default advanced OSCAR chart you can attach. Even standard detailed will help. Despite being an advanced machine, the ASV tuning is pretty easy. Likely we can help with a simple edit, turning it around in a few minutes.

OK, can you give us a look at the settings area in one OSCAR chart next time? This is the lower left panel below statistics.

PS Min 5 is probably too high for your comfort. Unless there was discussion to increase it I've missed, try PS Min 3.

In charts, you can rearrange if you'd like. Skip the flow limits as they're likely to have ugly activity due to ASV therapy actions. Translation the ASV can't do much with them due to the specific mission ASV has, treating CA. Also you might swap pressure with mask pressure.

Any comments on the therapy from the how did things feel perspective? Feeling during and post therapy might be useful, especially during.

We need to get it so you can get a more continuous sleep session.

it feels like i'm just about to drop off then a big jump in pressue. causing leaks and noise. Some times i get to early stage sleep and itll wake me up the same way. I dont stay asleep or dream until i am exhausted around 6 am. Un treated, during my Sleep study, they said i had an unusually high event rate. Evdn on CPAP i event totals in the 40's. My stroke tooks out alot of blood supply to my brain stem. Please forgive me if this is full of errors or if they way im communicating doesnt make sense

Yes, definitely, for comfort if nothing else, edit PS Min to 3.

When you're able, give some description about what ASV feels like to guide us in suggesting settings.
