Thanks so much Sierra. I have 4 roommates who don't have stuff in the morning and the walls are thin. I found today one took off for a month and the other 2 are just not home. They socialize and the house is full of people in the morning. It gives me a chance to see what my sleep is doing without the noise.
I've looked all over the RERA data and see nothing happening. Regarding VS2 I didn't have any until it got cold and I started putting the hose under the covers.
Perhaps it is taking a while. I got a success image message and could it see it in preview.
SH data is saved as .png, this website won't let me save it here.
I ran as cpap at 90% pressure of 12. Feel a lot more rested. No FL or CA and reduced RERA.
I work 2nd shift and sleep is 2 -10:30. When I awaken I always hear noise in our household. Is it possible it is the noise and not actual RERA awakening me?
Not working, will have to try after work.
I'm lost on how to attach the file.
Thanks for your responses! My machine is an older Dream Station. I'm pretty sure it is used, they have removed all data relating to cumulative hours.
Last night 14 FL, 6 RERA, 3 hypopneas, VS2 25 - it is the same thing the not responding correctly. I started snoring as the pressure has increased.
Sierra thank you for the paper. I will read it in depth. My dr spent about 5 min looking at my data and said I was cured and gave me prescriptions to sleep and stimulant to stay awake. I have not taken either. Since my first study, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and have a foot injury that prevents me from activity, menopause - gained 12 lbs but much more is body fat.
It sounds from the article that progesterone can help also.
Do I need to see a different type of dr? My current sleep dr is a neurologist. Figure 1 resembles my sleep. Flow rate is very inconsistant with mini apneas all over.
I have been using cpap since 2004 diagnosed UARS. In Oct 2018 new sleep study diagnosed OSA. AHI 15 RDI 50.8, explains the exhaustion. All drs have commented on narrow airway.
My APAP was set 4-20, AHI 2.8, felt better but not great. Changed the setting 9-16. Since then my 90% pressure went up from 9.0 to 10.5, My sleepiness is not bad most days, AHI 0-1.
Days like today are the problem. AHI 0.43, totally unproductive, tired all day. This happens on the RERA days. The last few hours of sleep I remembered being awake, RERA was 6 events over 2 hours plus 2 hypopneas. I'm frustrated that the apap isn't reacting to the RERAs.
I changed pressure to 10-16, with a 6-10 ramp. I had insomnia every single night at that pressure and couldn't tell if it helped. On SleepyHead it says I have no pressure relief. What is that and would turning that on help with the higher pressures?
Is there a way to get the machine to react faster to events? Both hypopneas the pressure was hanging at 9 and went up after the fact. I've contemplated setting a long ramp 7-14 over 5 hours.
Thanks a lot!
