What went wrong? Please help! Sleepyhead data included.

Postby Chairman Meow on Fri May 19, 2017 1:45 pm

When I first started CPAP about two years ago it was the answer to my prayers. Back then I was a frequent visitor here, and monitored my SleepyHead data religiously. I became complacent though, and now I've forgotten everything I learned and I need help to figure out the problem.

About a month ago I started noticing that I was not sleeping as well. Then about two weeks ago, I started noticing that my humidifier tank was much emptier in the mornings than it used to be. Then two nights ago I actually ran out of water before I woke up. OMG, the smell!!!! Anyway, I Googled the problem, and found that leaks can be the culprit of an emptying-too-soon humidifier. Today I came home and looked at my data on Sleepyhead for the first time in more than a year... and I don't know what I'm looking at. I don't even remember what the pie chart on the left is supposed to look like

Help? I included a few nights for comparison sake. I can also post some from when I first started if that will help?

Then there is this Overview that seems to indicate that SOMETHING went wrong about a month ago... but I may be misreading this entirely.

Thank you so much for any help or guidance you may be able to offer!

Whatever it was it seems to have resolved. Could be leaks, illness, weather, cats, many things but trying to look back a month and fix a mystery thing is difficult, to say the least.

I don't see anything...maybe the house was dryer than normal or the humidifier was not filled to max.
