Looking for advices
Hello!

I started APAP recently, struggling with insomnia, I don't really know if I sleep or not, but I still feel more refreshed since I started using it. Could I use your wisdom to improve the treatment? There's still CA and Hypopnea I don't know how to avoid..

Thank you!

RE: Looking for advices
You are using a minimum pressure of 10.8 with EPR 3, and your machine does not change pressure by more than 0.5 cm through the night. There are no obstructive apnea,and your exhale time is relatively long compared to inspiration, so it appears you may tolerate lower minimum pressure. We don't know much of your history and how you arrived at current pressures, so some of that information may be helpful. I certainly think if you find the pressure disruptive to your sleep you could move your minimum pressure to 9.0 or 10.0 and I would not expect to see much change in obstructive apnea, and it may reduce the centrals. I think most of the CA events are during disrupted sleep or while you are awake and are not a concern to your therapy.,
