Hi everyone. I came to this site to gain better understanding from those who read and post here about Cpap therapy. I was diagnosed with moderate to severe sleep apnea over 7 years ago.
I use a ResMed Air 10 machine. I now have a no mask device which has been an improvement over any of the former harness devices I've used in the past. I closely monitor my daily readouts since the beginning of March to check overall score and number of apnea events each hour. The last 3 nights have shown an increase in the number of events from 4.5, 6.6 to 7.4. Before then, my apnea events per hour were below 5 on a regular basis. There doesn't seem to be a correlation between the severity of leaks and my overall scores when compared to 'event' per hour rate.
Sleep is for the most part good. I wear my device for at least 7 hours each night. I am 64 years old. I exercise for 90 minutes on a daily basis. I weigh 202 lbs. and am 6'1".
