Re: Oximeter Imput Needed

I'm looking to purchase one too, due to waking up feeling my limbs are limp, not able to move from not breathing. Since using a apap, this has has only happened once again. But as soon as I don't use my apap, sure as sure I wake up with this problem mutiple times. I'd like to purchase a oximeter jus...

Re: Getting lots of apnea's still

Melinda, is your machine an S9 like it says in the profile? Do you know how to get info about the types of apneas -- central or obstructive? Did changing the range from 5-20 to 9-13 make any change in your results? Are you using EPR? At what level? O. The place I bought the S9 from prints out the r...

THN Sleep Therapy (video)

A similar story was recently shown on Australian TV, on the same device. Interesting.

Re: Getting lots of apnea's still

I have not replied straight away, thinking that it maybe just a fluke(one off). But in increasing the max pressure back to 20, the min at 9, I was getting AHI's of 5. Having now increased the min pressure to 10, leaving the max at 20, I'm getting AHI's 3 to 4! Wow! Before I was getting massive bunch...

Getting lots of apnea's still

Even though I have a APAP machine, it's showing I'm having lots of apneas a night. My AHI average per night is 9. I see a number of people here lucky enough to have maybe 1 an hour if that. In reading Dave21's guide to less apnea's I have changed my pressure from 5 to 20, to 9 to 13. My average pres...

Re: Newbie question about water in my mask

Hi Enyrhtak, I use to run my humidifier dry, and have since been told I'm running it too warm. It was nice air though, but like yourself I would get rainout. I'd wake up with the water gurgling in the tube, due to the bend from cpap to the bed. A tube cover will fix allot of this, and is cheap to pu...

REM Sleep logging

When I went for my sleep study, they where able to report on when and how long I was in different stages of REM sleep.
How do they do this? and I can I do this also at home?

Re: How to reduce your AHI's for OSA [good results]

I don't understand why apnea events still occur, and frequently, while using xpap. I too get clustered events. Shouldn't they disappear all together with the use of an xpap machine? If I set my machine to near it's lowest flow setting(for max too), would that be a good way of seeing how many apnea e...

Re: S9 Autoset vs. M-Series Pro - AUDIO SMACKDOWN

Thanks DreamDiver for taking the time to record this. It's the first thing I noticed when using the S9. Didn't hear it in the shop, but once home, yep there is a strange noise when exhaling. Having a S8 Ellite previously, it never made this noise. When i wake up during the night, or in the morning, ...
