Thanks wiredgeorge. I was just wondering because it seems that My Air makes a big deal about it.
What is the relationship between leak rate and AHI reading? Last night I had a leak rate of 47 l/min and AHI average of 1.3 events per hr. Is that possible?
I have had the same experience with fatigue and I have been on CPAP since Nov. 1. I now consistently score 92 - 100 with AHIs mostly under 4. AHI was initially 25. I sleep 8 to 8.2 hrs per night waking a couple of times for bathroom. So, you would think I am totally well rested. But I am not! I do notice more energy during the day, but at around 3:00PM I get so exhausted I can barelt keep my eyes open. I am 73 years old, work part time from home so I am able to take a 45min to 1 hr nap. I thought after 4 months I should see more improvement. I have an appointment for a fitting at the end of this month. Hopefully I will get some answers. Will keep you posted.
I am using AirSense 10 with Resmed Airfit 20 nasal mask, and have been using it for four months. I still get extremely tired in the afternoon and takeabout an hour nap. Dr. just raised pressure on machine from 9 to 10 so we are going to see if that helps. In the meantime I just read something on the forum about leak rate. My scores on MY Air are constantly 95 to 100 but I do not see anything about leak rate. Where can I find that reading?
Does anyone have the Inspire implant? Or, does anyone know anything about it? Does it work, is it safe, side effetcts, etc. Any cmments would be appreciated.
Thanks for the advce, but i have now gained a total of 9 lbs. since i starteed therapy one month ago. I now weigh more than i ever have and although i do ear and drink more than usual over the holidays i have never. Gained this much weight. Thanks also for the link tot he article.
I seem to have gained 3 lbs or so in the 4 weeks since i started cpap therapy. Has anyone experienced the same thing?
I had this issue with a regular nasal mask. Was told by provider there is too much mositure in the line. Lower your humidity setting by 1 number.
I have just been diagnosed with sleep apnea and started the treatment 2 weeks ago. One of my sleep issues was that I woke up every hour to go to the bathroom and sometimes could not fall back to sleep. I Have been told that this problem would be resolved by the treatment. But it has not and I still get very tired by afternoon and have to take a nap. My question is this, 'is this usual and how long will it take before I begin feeling fully awake in the am and not tired in the afternoon?
