Please reformat your charts so the useless AHI chart is hidden (and the snore chart too, just make the others bigger) and please don't use imgbb to host the pics, they're shrunk and fuzzy and I can't read anything when I blow them up. (don't shrink the pics).

Just upload them to the forum here, with the 'attachments' button.

We'll do our best to help you, but we have to be able to read the charts.

Instructions in my sig.

How is your sleep quality? How long does it take you to fall asleep?
Do you wake up during the night and have trouble going back to sleep?

You have some clustering at the beginning of the night where we assume you were still awake. Any chance you were awake during some of the other clusters during the night?

I am thinking some of your higher numbers reflect awake breathing irregularities flagged by the machine as some sort of apnea event but they aren't real if you aren't asleep. The machine doens't have any way to measure if you are asleep or not. It measures air flow/breathing only and awake/semi awake breathing can often cause false positive event flagging.

So the flagged events are related more to awake breathing or poor sleep than it is the airway closing off.

You might want to watch all the videos here and learn how to figure out if the flagged event was real (as in you were really asleep) or if it was related to awake/semi awake/arousal breathing instead which we often call SWJ or sleep/wake/junk.

So...how's your sleep quality? Spend much time awake with mask and machine on?
Do you take any medications? If so, what?
