I have ad my machine for just under 6 months now and it is getting to be camping season again. I can Not go without my machine and the humidifier so I am trying to figure what my best option is. I have looked at a Battery backup but it will only run for one night before needing a recharge. as of right now I have not been able to find a 12v charger for the ups that the sleep clinic suggested I buy. I feel like it is a "the power went out while you where sleeping and the ups kept it running, sort of situation". My Machine is a 12v 6.67a dc power consumption. my thought would be just get a 12v adapter from manufacturer and be done. as long as it is not going to kill my battery's in the trailer overnight. does anyone have experience with this situation.
Downloaded the sleepyhead program and it does not like me. says my machine is too new? Sierra as you seem to be good at this stuff what do you make of this.
i dont have a break down of the events yet. have not gotten to the sleepyhead software. that is on the list of things to do.
Doctor has done exactly what you had said Sierra. lowered base pressure and we are going to monitor till my events start to rise or I stop getting the discomfort in the morning, I have gone from 22.7 to 5.2 events per hour a night but the asv machine is still breathing 10% of the time while I am having central events. so go news so far I will say I am happy with the 5.2 but not so happy with only breathing 90% of the time on my own. Maybe the machine will be able to magiclly train my brain to do it on its own but I don't expect that to happen.
Sierra you are definedly a wealth of knoledge on all this. i have been reading over other subjects and you information is always very thought inducing. lol. dont go anywhere, there are alot of people that you can pass this info onto.
I am using a Phillips Bipap Autosv I am running 12 cm as a base and have had it ramp up to 22 during a central apneas. This happened the first night with it and i called in to my sleep clinic and they advised that if the pressure was too high and it woke me up after a centrtal apnea to hit the ramp button, that has worked since then but the aerophagia started a few days after, but today it was better, mainly just two bad mornings. I have started having a cup of pepermit tea for breackfast before my coffe and that seems to get a start on the feeling that i have had the air forced down my throut all night, a few more days in and hopefully i will have some more luck.
not yet I have a follow up in two days and will see what they say
thanks I did find that in a search that you had posted and have read it.
I am still a bit new to my ASV machine and have been finding that I am getting a lot of trapped air overnight. Didn't have this issue with my cpap machine that I used for a month before being upgraded to a asv machine as the reg cpap machine was making it worse. Now since I have been using the asv machine I am waking up with Aerophagia, don't really notice till I stand up and start walking around. Running 12 cm base and ramping up when I go to bed from 5 cm with a full face mask. today has been the worst so far. has been constant for last 7 hrs. last few times I ave got it it has disappeared wit laying down and "off gassing" not today. trying the peppermint tea trick right now but just wondering if anyone else has figured anything else out.
