43 years old with CPA. Using BiPAP.
As you can see...Sleepyhead shows less than 2 AHIs for Jan 1st thru Jan 5th, but the Resmed shows 5 o rmore AHIs during the same date range.
These are my daily stats shown by sleepyhead
here it is....AHIs
Thank you so much Sierra... So overall my numbers are looking good? Why Resmed app online shows different numbers? I will upload the Resmed screenshot in a bit...
Hi all, I was able to export my stats by using a different SD card and sleepyhead software. My numbers look different from what the Resmed Aircurve 10 machine provides, is this correct? (In the machine are actually a little bit worst)... Hope someone expert can see my screenshot stats and let me know if I am doing ok... last night I had a big leak by using my nasal mask (I usually use a full mask, but I used the nasal once in a while to see if it works)... I opened my mouth very probably. Thanks
I have been tempted to use it, but I am afraid of not waking up anymore if I have a prolonged apnea...
Thanks for the advise. I did switch off the lock on my card before running sleepy head. Like i said it only worked once.
I used sleepyhead a few months ago, but I think my SD card got messed up. It can not be read any longer.
By the other hand, I recently got sick during Xmas with strep throat and I have been taking a very strong antibiotic (cephalexin)...in the last 4 or 5 days my AHIs have been increasing (4>AHIs<7.5). Is this because of this treatment or could be my coughing being detected as apneas? What about ocassions where I burp little by little due to the aerophagia?...I also have to expel bunch of phlegms at this time.
My biggest fear is to get sick with pneumonia, bronchitis or flu while having this sleep apnea issue. I always clean my equipment in a proper way.
I am worried now...
The best way to know is to put your cell phone to record with mic your sleeping, that's how I found out mine along with the symptoms I was presenting.
Previously I started on a CPAP in April 2016, I had my first Sleep Study and got 39 AHI... I was diagnosed with OSA, I used the CPAP for about 2 years with lower AHIs results until the second year where my AHIs went terribly higher...I was feeling fatal even with the CPAP, blood pressure came back even worst (200/110) and experienced premature ventricular contractions for which I had to be admitted to the hospital on Jan 12th, 2018 , I thought that I was having a heart attack! Thanks God it wasn't one, but my life changed since then. I went thru 2 more sleep studies and I was diagnosed with Central Sleep Apnea (I honestly think the CPAP caused me that...) Now my pulmonologist says i no longer need the turbonoplasty to correct my septum since my problem has become a problem with my neurons and brain. I have been with my BiPAP machine for three months where my AHIs have been >3 & <5 but I have realized just recently for the last two days that my numbers have reduced considerably to < 1 AHIs. Currently my Resmed Aircurve 10 ST is set to EPAP 14 IPAP 20 START EPAP 6 and ramp time 45 min.
Only complain at this point: Aerophagia and too gassy.
Today my blood pressure is normal, memory issues and anxiery/panic attacks are gone too.
I have been looking for alternatives and have found internal and external "pacemakers" to stimulate the diafragm and lungs
All these methods need mostly invasive surgeries with a bunch of risks which I was considering until I found the unknown "neuroplasticity". My doc laughed about it when I mentioned neuroplasticity to him...i guess our business is over if I get cured with natural methods if any. 😁
Thanks for reading.
