This is from a ResMed Airsense with EPR. I think between EPAP: 4 and IPAP: 8. How much higher do you think it should go? Thanks!
It could be a severe case of "Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea"., the only difference is that instead of happening a few hours after sleep, it occurs instantly.
I'm experiencing the same symptoms described on this thread. Basically, my breathing becomes shallower and more labored as I'm falling asleep. Eventually when I doze off, my breathing stops completely. Immediately my body wakes me up with the need to "manually" take a breath.
Last night I hooked up my CPAP and I tried to document what I was feeling with real data.
This is my "awake" breathing, while I'm comfy settled in bed.
And this is my breathing a few minutes later, as it becomes more labored. You can even see the pauses that wake me up:
Does anybody have any idea what this could be? Is my diaphragm or some nerves damaged?
