Re: New Machine For Central Sleep Apnea

Welp, I found out what happens when I forget to put the SD card back in the machine. Put it back today in hopes the machine would have the night's detail and put it on the card. No, but at least it had a summary. No surprise, I'm not feeling as good today. Stayed up too late. Got up for bathroom at ...

Flow limits are about what we expect with the ASV machines. They tend to make mountains out of mole hills.
I would just ignore the FL graph.

Re: New Machine For Central Sleep Apnea

Another pretty good night. I feel good today, although I'm wondering if that's partly because I have "treated" myself to some extra time in bed two nights in a row. :-) I did wake briefly twice due to high pressure/leaking mask. Both times rolled over and got right back to sleep. I remember trying t...

Re: New Machine For Central Sleep Apnea

Alright.
There was only one time I woke up very briefly because the mask was getting pushed off my face. I think it was about 6:30, so I got through that high pressure just before 4 without waking....

Re: New Machine For Central Sleep Apnea

By the way, when I made that change I noticed that the current setting, "20," is the highest it can be. Also, changes can be made to 0.2 precision. Seems odd to me that, for example, 15.0 would really be much different from 15.2 Or, would it?? I'm starting tonight at 15.0 - If the mask i's getting b...

Re: New Machine For Central Sleep Apnea

The PS high rapid burst is what is designed to force you to breathe when you aren't breathing do to central apneas. Per your statistics it looks like the machine was giving the full 20 PS... 10 to 12 PS will normally be sufficient though. We don't want to restrict PS too much.... but we do have som...

Re: New Machine For Central Sleep Apnea

try changing max PS down from 20 to 15. Are you on ASV for some sort of central apnea problem? This reminds me, I want to check against the settings of previous machine, maybe max PS was lower there, too. I know the Dr specified lower min PS, from 6 to 5.....and I notice that when first starting Ye...

The best way to post a chart is to take a screenshot and upload it, after you've formatted the chart this way: Include the left panel with the calendar turned off (click on the triangle next to today's date) Fit the following graphs into one screen shot: Events Flow rate Pressure Leaks Flow limitat...

Re: New Machine For Central Sleep Apnea

When you're able, try posting an Oscar daily chart. Maybe we can see what's going on with the pressures that are bothering you. As it turns out, last night was the worst yet. (All previous were actually pretty good) Is this a good way to share Oscar data? https://www.dropbox.com/s/enw5ojbhs18agz5/o...

The Leak reading is 7L/min.
Can't type detailed explanation but that 7 is extremely good 95% number.
At or below 7 L/min for 95% of the night. Pretty much not much excess leak at all.
Cool, thanks!

If I can eliminate those short periods of high pressure that woke me up, I will be golden.
