My mom (around 70) is using the ResMed Airsense 10 autoset for Her for 4 months and stopped for 6 months as not able to adjust. Now she is trying again. Her complaints is when she lost conscious, then with mouth and nose breath, the air in the mask seems too strong and woke her up (She has sleep disorder and sleep onset insomnia) and hard to fall sleep again. Also nose get congestion. So i did ask her to use nasal wash and the OTC steriod Fluticasone twice a day. Please advice if anything can help her adjust the mask usage. Please let me know any suggestion. thanks a lot
Hi sleeptech, when you said "7- years of age, 5.5 hours/night after only just 4 months is pretty good. ", from you experience, what is the average usage hour is this group of people for initial use, and how long do normally take the patient to get used to , or they may never be able to. I am trying to understand how is the progress. thanks again
My mom (70) refused to use the RESMED APAP for last few days, since she is very bad at falling into sleep. She is currently taking Generic Zoloft for 2 and half months, and I don't want to give her any more sleeping pills such as Alprazolam (she has been taking the min amount for a while). She did some small exercise like walk or small workout at home. But she just not able to fall in sleep, especially when wearing the mask. When she did, she take off the mask like 2-3 am, wearing for 3-4 hours nightly. She is low income and no qualified insurance, also CBT not sure an option since she can't speak English. I planned to take her to visit the county's health system clinic Primary Doctor next month. Meanwhile how am i able to let her continue using the machine? Please share with me your suggestion. thank you all.
HI, My mom is the patient, currently I have downloaded the data to ResScan. There are statistics, detailed graph panes etc. Is there a necessary to periodically review these data? Or using simple MyAir review is good enough, such as AHI, mask seal, humidity level.. thanks again.
so could you use plain English easy to allow me understand: Setting 1 reduces pressure on exhalation by 1 cm H2O. meaning? pressure and exhalation relationship. thanks again.
is there a way patient can tell the difference between on or off
