Updated data from this morning. CAs seems to be present, but they were only within 10-14 seconds. I did put on Ramp Time Auto, not sure why it's showing 45mins here, but auto on the machine. Any real concern? Any input?
Let's give that a try. Results tomorrow!
Thank you for your reply. Here's data from yesterday. 7min and 8 max, EPR Ramp only at 3cm. Any input? CA seems still high, though a couple of them were just above 10seconds, the obstructive apnea, 2 are just above 10seconds, one was 31seconds. The pressure stayed close to 7.99 - 8.00 throughout the night? What do you think about lowering it 6cm min to 7cm?
Let me know your thoughts.
I think if I drop it down to 8 cm, I will have obstructive apnea, this is why i set it up at 8.8 - 9.0. You think 8.0 will be okay? Yes, I dont know why central apnea is so high. I thought the EPR is for the whole night, when you inhale, it helps lower the setting by 1cm? Is this not correct? I find this easier to breathe. I don't need Ramp as starting at 8cm feels comfortable for me already.
I can try starting at 7cm to 8cm max with 1EPR still and see what happens. Any suggestions, let me know by tonight :).
Help with interpretation? Suggestions?
Second night, Sierra and Bonjour, and others, please help share your insight? I made slight modification since first night.
Sierra and Bonjour, thank you for replies. I look forward to posting my results again tomorrow morning and would like you all to continue the conversation. Since it is my first time of using this machine and reading the data, all of these medical vocabulary and terms are new to me and I have minimal clue how to interpret them.
For tonight, I will change EPR to 1 instead of 2, and just change min pressure to 7 and max to 14. Sierra, should I leave EPR full time? Why do I need auto ramp? I feel auto ramp is too slow at the beginning....I could handle the min pressure starting at 7 at the beginning and do not feel a thing. Any other suggestions I should do for tonight would be greatly appreciated :).
Hi all, just received my machine yesterday. I was diagnosed 35+ AHI during sleep study. This is my first night on APAP! Please share your insight!! What numbers should I be looking at? What are some tips and suggestions you may have. Please point out any significance for me. Thank you in advance!
I am wondering if this ResMed AirSense S10 ordered by my sleep medicine doctor is different from the one, ResMed AirSense 10 autoset? Are they the same? I want the autoset!!!!
I don't understand... Do I have sleep apnea or not? And how can I tell how severe is it? Mild or Moderate? See link or below for graphs and charts:
