I've been on CPAP for about three months now. It has been mostly going well and I feel much better using it. However, there is still some improvement that I think can be made, since I still wake up feeling like I haven't had a full night's sleep.
I have been regularly monitoring my data on OSCAR since starting therapy. One thing that I have noticed is that I experience a lot of mini arousals (perhaps about five an hour) that last for about 5 seconds. I don't remember actually waking up though during these arousals. I used to think that these arousals are spontaneous arousals but now I am beginning to suspect that they may be respiratory arousals.
I am sharing some images below.
I am also curious about whether obstructive events that occur following an arousal are real obstructive events or not. I see that a lot of the times in my data I experience an obstruction following an arousal.
My machine and settings are: Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset. 9 min/11 max. EPR = 3.
