Differencein AHI during diferent times of the day
Differencein AHI during diferent times of the day
During the day I may go back to bed for a nap lasting anywhere from 15min to 2 hrs . During these naps my AHI ranges from 0 to perhaps as high as .5  .  But nights my long term AHI averages 1.83. I just wonder why I do so much beter during the day and  unfortunitly I don't have a bed partner to blame this on.  It's no big deal I can live with the AHI of 1.83  that I now get with my ResMed  it's not like the darn average AHI of about 9 I was having with my old cursed Dreamstation .

RE: Differencein AHI during diferent times of the day
Hi, E.W.  That's an intriguing question.  Perhaps you relax more deeply during the longer night sleep, or there could be differences in position.  If you could post some OSCAR charts, I bet the analysts would be able to see what's happening and make recommendations.  Your need for naps also suggests that further improvements may be possible using this more capable machine.

RE: Differencein AHI during diferent times of the day
  • Shorter sleep cycle - less time REM
  • Different wake to sleep time ratio. Where you don't experience events while awake
  • Using Ramp? Ramp time doesn't measure events and therefore higher ramp to therapy ratio would lower AHI.
  • Different quality of sleep while napping.
