I've been using an Intellipap for 4 months, and early on had HUGE improvement. Last few weeks I have been SO tired and sleepy, both when I wake up and in the middle of the day - just like before I was on my APAP. Getting in to see the sleep doctor is a 6+ month waiting list... I bought the smartlink software but have not learned much from it - like this morning, as tired as I can remember being in months, and it only recorded a few hypoapnea events last night, and never increased pressure (setting the Dr. put me on is 5 cm min and 12 cm max; A few weeks ago when I got the software I bumped up the max to 15 cm because I've seen e or 4 nights a week where my max pressure ended up being >13.9). If I run w/the minimum setting the Dr. put me at (5 cm) it almost never responds; if I set it to a minimum of 6.5 cm, I get many more events and higher pressures during the night. Does this make sense to anyone? Suggestions?
