75 yrs old, diagnosed four years ago, Recently on oxygen with CPAP,
After months of AHI under 5, AHI spiked to 29 last night, Any thoughts will be appreciated
have mild occasional soreness on the left-hand side of my chest, chest x-ray negative
My 50-year-old son Who has been diagnosed with sleep apnea and sleeps with a CPAP
wakes up every night after two or three hours of sleep with numbness in the legs
the numbness wakes him up
this has been going on for about 5 yrs
he's seen multiple doc's without a diagnosis
any insight will be greatly appreciated
check out the SoClean web page, it DOES clean a vpap or cpap machine, hose, and mask
I use a SoClean unit to clean my VPAP when home-- since SoClean units are not very portable I do not take it with me when I travel--I wonder how many nights one can NOT clean a VPAP unit without asking for trouble?
how does one check CO2 levels when on O2
Appreciate your response, My prescription is for 2 L, Only been using it for a week but apparent benefit is reduction of high AHI spikes, Wonder if Further improvement Might be achieved By increasing to 3 or 4 L
Thank you for your response, I wonder why res med gives AHI only 5 of 100 points on their scale, and why they gave a score of 2 out or 5 to a 14.2 AHI?
my AHI is very rarely below 5 which I understand to be the goal, I notice when I check my results every morning that when I get an AHI greater than 5 such as 14.2 last night, that the res med formula gives me an AHI score of 2 out of 5; this leads me to conclude the goal o a 5 AHI might be the gold standard, but that an AHI under 15 or ok?
