Sounds like it's coming along, maybe not great but it'll come soon. Helpful hint and use it if/when it applies, if the data begins to be an obsession just don't look at it. You know if you feel better for therapy or not, data just measures stuff, your real feel data is better gauge on success.

I have been referring to a Kingsbridge chin strap.    Oops!     It is a Knightsbridge chin strap.      I was picturing a KING   wearing a crown and riding his horse over a bridge.

Some of my OA s    are longer than 60 seconds.      I continue to try to eliminate  the OA s...   usually have a cluster or two ,   and shorter periods.     So I am still working on the positional apnea challenge.     
How much should I be concerned about these long apneas?        I   haven't read anything about lengths of individual apneas.    

I would like to keep my brain cells alive, as much as I can.    

Thank you for your consideration.

Hello again!

I woke up this morning feeling OK,   ...fair...as usual.     I checked my numbers.      AHI  5.4      it's been running lower than that.      

I've been sleeping with a nerf-type football attached to the back of my sleep-shirt   (it replaced several tennis balls),   a soft cervical collar,   a knightsbridge chinstrap,  all  in addition to my full face cpap mask.       

"AHI 5.4   !  "    

My sweet husband very calmly said,   "I'm sorry to say this,   but my opinion is that  you're still alive to gripe to me. " Rolleyes

If you're inclined to do so we can look at the OSCAR chart. Do you think the increasing AHI is purely a positional thing? I'm sure there's very little room for any more stuff on the sleeping accessory list.

Clusters. AKA chin-tucking, I suppose. I will have to re-read the information on those things. Thank you for reply, Dave.
