Any idea what would cause a respiratory rate to jump from around 14 to the mid to upper 40's?
I use OSCAR to track my stats, and I am having random periods of elevated respiratory rate. It' normally around 14, but for periods of 10-20 minutes the rate will more than double and go up into the 40's.
I think an episode of elevated respiration will only end because I end up waking up. The reason I think this is because I often notice on the graph that my mask pressure also drops all the way down. I will wake up throughout the night, and sometimes I will turn my machine off and on again to reset it to a lower pressure which makes it easier to get back to sleep.
