Hi,

I've had advice on here previously which was very useful but I've had my APAP machine since July 2019 and still haven't reached a point where I'm consistently feeling more rested so wonder if there's any more advice.

I've got an appointment with a respiratory nurse to talk about my treatment soon and want to ask them about other reasons I could be waking up in the night as I still seem to have a lot of CA events that have a spike preceding them which I know means they are probably not genuine and being caused by something else. Being in the UK and at the mercy of the NHS though I'm not sure if they'll be able to help.

I recently bought a dehumidifier for my house as well to see if stabilising the humidity would help as the UK weather has been off and on wet and warm recently so quite big humidity swings, anyone had any success/effect with doing this?

Attached a screenshot of last night's Sleepyhead and also a zoomed in one on one of the "not" CA events. I know 2.59 is not high and the actual number is probably lower as some of the events could be dismissed but for me it seems even very small changes in AHI appear to affect me massively. My sleep nurse said this can be the case in some people?

Any advice gratefully received and thanks in advance,

Alistair

WELL, there's your problem, you got the machine in the future, and the time paradox is causing problems since you haven't caught up to that yet! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Definitely a post arousal central in that case.

I'd suggest bumping up your min pressure, and seeing if that will smooth things out a little, I'd try 12-20 on the pressure settings.

Thanks diamaunt, I'll try the pressure setting changes suggested and yes I do have one of the new APAP/time machine hybrids :D

I'd ask where I could get one, but I probably couldn't afford it yet/then. :)
