I'm all for experimenting with that, but, apparently, this is and unstable time of year for me. Although it has calmed down some. allergies have been just bad enough to clog a nostril here and there. Despite that, I have not gone over 5 AHI in twenty days now. The problem is, it's usually not for more than a couple of hours at a time because if I use Afrin (which I feel I must, at this point) to unclog the one nostril, it tends to make it hard to sleep because it dries me out so much, the irritation wakes me up. I'm hoping for a change in allergy season that will allow me to breath better. I am willing to go along with the fixed pressure, but until I can get some extended sleep sessions, I don't feel like experimenting will bring us much good data right now. I see where you said you'll be gone for two weeks and it's only been 9 days so far. I'll send you some data, hopefully before you come back. Had 9 and a half almost uninterrupted hours last night with a 2.77 AHI. When I wake up, it's always with a clogged or almost closed nostril. If that didn't happen, I think I would have AHI under one. I string 2 hours without so much as a Hypop every once in a while. I feel like anything that's not perfect is me and not this near perfect machine. A better way to bring more moisture from the humidifier when I really need it would be nice. That's a pipe dream, not a request. So the machine is perfect, it's the humidifier that isn't. LOL. Thanks very much for the heads up on your sabbatical from the apnea site. You deserve time away from we cry babies. Oh...speaking of crybabies, I feel so embarrassed I though that guy was ripping me off by selling me a used machine at a new price. You were exactly right about it being information I entered myself. Thank you, I'm glad you remembered that I had done that.
