Thank you Delta Bravo. My intention was to post two weeks to get a decent sample size. But when I just plugged in my sim card it was blank for the last two weeks. So I'll try again in a few days.

Question. MY dr. prescribed 12cm H20, does that mean that I should be trying to get the air pressure to 12.0?


Thank you shagrock, also learned a new acronym.

Thank you Enrique. My DR specifically prescribed a full face mask, did yours? Also when you switched to a nose breathing apparatus did you use a chin strap? I'm also a mouth breather.

You have to leave the SD card in your cpap machine all night when you are using the machine to get the detailed data.
The only stuff stored on the cpap machine's internal memory is the summary data. The detailed data files for all the graphs have to go directly to the SD card.

Correct, the card needs mounted to the PAP before you use it, or the data is lost. It doesn't save it in the PAP machine for downloading later. It goes directly to the card to be wrote as it happens.

Hey Cpapers,

It's been a minute since I've posted. I've changed masked several times and have now settled on a soft cushion and smaller mask. Seems to fit me better.

Attached is a clump of two weeks of sleep of Oscar Data. I don't know how to analyze it.

I've had my c-pap machine since August and have still yet to have that feeling of waking up well rested no matter how many hours of sleep I get.

Please advise on where to go from here.

Chad

The data seems to indicate you've gotten the leaks under better control, and events also are in check. Keep in mind that you had undiagnosed sleep apnea with not well rested sleep likely for years. It doesn't reverse in a week or a month or two. You have to keep on this and it will pay off. I didn't see any area except the Ramp that I would suggest changes. You may want to shorten it and/or increase Ramp pressure. The therapy pauses until Ramp is over, so this needs to be as short as possible. Most do get to the place where they just turn it off altogether. Try to add OSCAR data as screenshots as otherwise we must download your files. When you have the OSCAR screen you want to post, click F12 and it saves that into the file you chose or the default screenshot file of your PC. And the look you want to present is listed in my link number 3 ending in the word Organization. Event flags always are on top, then a few other graphs. You're doing great otherwise. Best wishes you feel the results soon.

Appreciate it. I'm confused for the ramp. I have my ramp set for 0, is that not what you're reading?

It must have been active or seemed to be. If you don't have a Ramp set, it may have been something I looked at wrong.

OK just to check my sanity, I looked at your charts again. Around August 15 you had a Ramp ON at 4 cmH20 for 30 minutes. It may be you have since turned it off. Most of the screenshots don't show the Ramp setting, but there's a few older dated ones that did show it on that left panel.
