Those numbers over previous 7 weeks,CPAP 8 cmH2O: CA 6.4, OA 0.7, HA 0.6 >>> 8.5 AHI, 95%Leak 8.4, Slept 7.15 hours avg.
Those numbers over past three weeks,CPAP 7 cmH2O: CA 9.2, OA 0.4, HA 0.7 >>> 10.7 AHI, 95%Leak 2.4, Slept 4.53 hours avg.
What has changed over the entire 10-week period? My weight has increased from 158 to 163. Sleep quality has not been as good as during the 7 weeks before and average sleep time has fallen off from 7.15 to 4.53 hours per night. Nexium was substituted for Prevacid and the dosage per day was doubled, taking it in the morning and now at night. Burping symptoms are primarily during the day, a little at night. Nothing else I can think of.
My doc has been concerned by the CA going up for some time now. He hoped reducing the pressure would help. If anything, it seems to have worsened matters even though Leak, which was not an issue (8.4 avg.), has come down some more and stayed down.
So what's going on? Any ideas. Thanks if you have any, --papit
