I've had severe OSA for at least 20 years and prob longer. Finally got CPAP 2 months ago. Untreated OSA was likely a big cause for the Coronary Artery Disease I now have. I started on Auto Pap with Dream Station and Red Mes full face mask at pressure of 5. Was hovering between 4 and 6 AHI according to Dream Mapper for most part. I wanted to try to improve that and so I asked my Doc to increase minimum pressure to 7. Instead of doing just that it seems he also took me off the Auto and put me on a steady 7 pressure all night. That hasn't been confirmed yet but my analysis of the data is what I am understanding. Disclaimer - I am not at all tech savvy and I am having a very hard time understanding what I am looking at on Oscar so I may be totally off base with this claim.
I desperately need some help here to interpret the data and gain any important insights the experts here can offer as to the nature of my condition and any suggestions you can offer as well to try to reduce my AHI and TTIA.
The change in my pressure setting took place on June 3rd and there is a noticable increase in my AHI on June 3rd going forward so it seems logical to assume that the change in pressure had something to do with it.
I am also experiencing Clear Apnea Events which I assume means I may have some level of Central Apnea as well?
Any insights and suggestions are sincerely appreciated.
I need to get this under control as my heart is not going to tolerate too much more of this.
Thank you in advance!!!
Hello all. I am considering the Inspire device and am looking to take in every bit of information I can find on it. If anyone has it I would love to hear anything and everything that you would care to tell about your experience so far. I am specifically interested in knowing if this is going to be visible and if I am going to be able to feel it with my fingers. Thank you so much in advance!
