"Many older adults who are on CPAP also may need supplemental oxygen. Supplemental oxygen is typically required for people who are diagnosed with some form of pulmonary disease such as COPD, Emphysema or lung cancer. It also may be the case that a CPAP user might need oxygen at night while asleep becomes of low blood oxygen levels. Whatever the case, if supplemental oxygen is needed, a new or veteran user might run into challenges when purchasing an oxygen concentrator and connecting CPAP to an oxygen concentrator"
I might need this oxygen concentrator, don't know why it's not prescribed.
So my headache problem is helped 50% by
There seems to be a link now between my physical symptomps (headache, chest pain) and my cognitive functions, together with sleep deprivation. It is about the blood O2/CO2 level
1) Doctor's diagnosis & treatment
Asthma was found, and "Budesonide + formoterol fumarate dihydrate" (e.g. Symbicort) was prescribed
Not sure about COPD: I have quickly a shortness of breath while running, but in daily physical work I look like normal.
2) My CO2/O2 measurement
3) My sleep symptomps
4) My cognitive symptomps
5) What I do to improve my health
Hi there, sorry for a late response. I have an Spirometry and I will see how I can connect that with Sleepy head data
I do see that my headache is much increased if there is no water in my heated chamber. So one cause is found. Thanks everyone.
CO2 level where I live is normal, air quality index of 36, which is good.
I will do SleepyHead probably this week or next week. I am chaotic with everything now. Thanks
Hi there, I am using that Heated Humidifier
This is my machine and setting
Mask: Mirage™ FX Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
Humidifier: PR System One 50 Series Heated Humidifier
Setting: CPAP pressure 9 H2O, Machine = PR System One REMstar Pro CPAP Machine with C-Flex Plus
Thanks for your reply,
I gave up using Sleepy Head after 2-4 months studying it directly after the first months on CPAP, because I have not found anything strange. Probably my machine was not able to record more data to SleepyHead, or I was not able to read it correctly.
I sleep 7-8 hours per day.
