Re: A new finding

Thank you, luckily she’s had both jabs so only really felt like she had a heavy cold, although she’s still a little tired and her taste isn’t fully back she’s now fine.

I always liked big puffy bed pillows but now I’m sleeping on what look like pancakes, but seems to be doing the trick

Re: Amara View - Magnetic Clips?

Old post I know, but I use the Amhara view headgear and was having terrible trouble with large leaks with the magnets, somewhere around 20% of night, since changing back to the old headgear with the clips my large leaks are now zero again every night...

Re: just cannot get it right uk

It's very possible the bulk of the centrals are just a by product of the increase in the OAs and hyponeas. The OAs/hyponeas cause crappy sleep with lots of arousals and the centrals are from arousal breathing false positives...it's entirely possible. No way to know for sure though until you reduce ...

Re: just cannot get it right uk

But is there a reason why I’m all of a seen experiencing more central’s than last 5 years?....... I’ve always been told by hospital I have obstructive not central sleep apnea....... every time I ring them they say don’t get hung up on numbers as the machines aren’t accurate at seeing everything, but...

Re: just cannot get it right uk

Hi Juggsy75, Look on the bottom of the machine for the word 'REF' and tell us the number next to it. If it says '461' then you have a fixed pressure machine, made in West Germany. That means it can't go to auto – I say that although a number of 460s and 461s were made which could vary the pressure ...

Re: just cannot get it right uk

It wouldn't be impossible for the OAs and hyponeas you are seeing happening to be causing arousals which in turn could be causing the centrals to be flagged as false positives. Your pressure is sub optimal...not preventing the OAs and hyponeas very well. Might be related to sleeping position or eve...

Why are you on fixed (one) pressure rather than auto?
It’s the machine the hospital gave me, I’ve been using it no issues last 5 years, is there a reason to be on auto then

Re: concerned about periodic breathing

Nothing matters if you weren't for sure asleep. I can't tell from your zoomed in images if you were likely asleep or not. Actually need to see the flow rate just prior to the PB flagged breathing along with the first PB to get a better idea. You might turn off Flex exhale relief and see if this cha...

Re: concerned about periodic breathing

If you weren't asleep then all that ugly stuff doesn't matter. It's just awake breathing irregularities getting flagged by mistake. Remember the machine doesn't have any way to know if you are awake or asleep. It only measures air flow or breathing and our awake/semi awake breathing is much more ir...
