Hi everyone I’m new on the forums and don’t know who to get help from. I don’t have a sleep doctor at the sleep study I go to but I think he’s just the manager there that just gives advice. Anywho. I’ve been on my BiPAP machine for 9 months now setting at 15:10. My ahi is normally under 5 . But since I’ve Been using the machine i still have clear airway apnea’s according to my DreamMapper. As far as events go I’ll have as low as 4 and and many as 27 events per night. Still my ahi is still below 5. The manager at my sleep study didn’t seem to worried about it. But I guess I’m just worried that my clear airway apnea’s haven’t gone away. I was diagnosed with a 94ahi during my sleep study I was just so worried that I wouldn’t go to sleep so I took 2 doses of NyQuil to make sure I fell asleep. Not sure if that had anything to do with why my ahi was so bad. I had 120 obstructive events, 2 central events, and 14 mixed apnea’s. They put me on a pressure of 17:12 at first but after being on it for a month I noticed I’d get gassy and bloated in the morning due to the high pressure. I talked to the manager at my sleep study and told me to lower the pressure down to 15:10. I actually feel better on that pressure and the ahi went down to an average of 3 ahi compared to 5,6 ahi at the pressure on 17:12. So I guess what I’m trying to ask is because I still have clear airway apnea’s is that something I should be concerned about or no because it’s still under 5 ahi. What should I do? Should I look for a real sleep dr?
