Re: Do I still have sleep apnea?

The machine monitors usage..not necessarily sleep. If you are wearing the mask with the machine running, it's counting. It monitors air flow. It can't tell if you are asleep or not.

Re: Does AHI reflect treated or untreated?

You had 4 events per hour while using the CPAP. The machine can't eliminate all events. Should reflect a large reduction from your sleep study done without a CPAP.

Re: Selling Machine to 1800CPAP.com

It's a legit company, but don't expect much if they even take it....you would be better off using Craigslist. What is the machine?
