re: Sleep Apnea...Have anyone of you had this?
Can you give an example of wide the heart rate swings are?

For example my resting heart rate for the last 24 hours was 66. My sleeping heart rate ranged 54 and 64, with almost all of it below 60.

On the high/low variance chart that Fitbit has, I was at the high variance section for about 5-10 percent of the night around 4 AM although I have no recollection of waking up at any point.

As I said earlier, my sleep study showed 5-6 hourly interruptions. However I had way worse interruptions a few years ago when I was sleeping exclusively on my back.

And for all the idiots that are about to come in and call you fat and tell you to lose weight, there are a shite ton of skinny people with sleep apnea as well.
This.

Though to be fair, weight can be the factor for some. I'm a former o-lineman who didn't drop weight after my D1 days were over. I went on it 10 years ago and I can feel a huge difference on the days after I don't wear it.

My wife was on it but in the past 2 years she's lost all the baby weight and added muscle weight from her college athlete days. She's kept on most of the muscle but is back to her lean high school body. (My biggest W in it is the great sex followed closely by her 1 meal a day diet rubbing off on me.) She stopped using her machine and still snores a bit. So from experience, while weight can impact severity I believe it's only one of a bunch of factors.

Then your pressure adjusts in that range depending on the events but it doesn’t change the pressure when you breathe in and out.



100% yes it does. It uses less pressure when you exhale and more when you inhale. That's the difference between an APAP and CPAP. You can hear the machine cutoff the air flow when I breathe out. I don't know why you're arguing with me about what my machine does.

CPAP is one level of continuous pressure. An APAP automatically adjusts the level of pressure while you sleep.

quote:

How APAP is different than CPAP
What is APAP technology in comparison to CPAP? While CPAP delivers one continuous pressure level of air, APAP automatically adjusts to meet each specific person’s breathing needs, which often change throughout the night as we move in and out of different stages of sleep.
quote:

What Is EPR On a ResMed AirSense 10?
The ResMed AirSense 10 has built-in sensors that detect a patient’s breathing. As an individual exhales, the CPAP machine responds by reducing the air pressure delivered by a specific amount. When an inhale is detected again, the machine raises the pressure back to the prescribed setting. This is known as EPR, or expiratory pressure relief.

re: Sleep Apnea...Have anyone of you had this?
EPR/CFLEX is just a comfort tool. It's a option that allows someone new to CPAP therapy to adjust more quickly to the therapy. It has no therapeutic benefit. You are actually better off not using this option if you are tolerant and need no help getting used to CPAP. The most important thing about CPAP is getting the correct pressure to keep the airway patent. Too much pressure, can kick you into central sleep apnea.

In a perfect world, auto with no pressure relief (EPR/CFLEX) and no ramp. People new to CPAP will say they can't exhale properly when they put on their mask. But when they go to sleep, they have no issues and most sleep like a baby.

re: Sleep Apnea...Have anyone of you had this?
I have severe Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is "slow burn" condition that can lead to serious medical conditions. Not the least of which, if left untreated, can lead to oxygen deprevation to the brain, weight gain, hypertension, and strokes.

After a Sleep Study, my sleep doctor (a pulmonary specialist) prescribed a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine and it was godsent to me. I simply cannot sleep without it. Advances in mask design have resulted in super comfortable mask. Almost like not wearing one at all.

So I urge you to get a sleep study done asap. Then get on a CPAP treatment. You'll thank us for it.

Good Luck, and happy sleeping.

Wait so you can’t handle a minimally invasive CPAP mask but your ok surgically implanting a device to shock you all night long?

I knew a lady, years ago, that want to do the UPPP surgery instead of doing CPAP. 3 surgeries later, including one in California (she traveled there from Alabama) to fix the botched original surgery, and CPAP while it would have resolved her sleep apnea if she had went that route, will not work for her now. Several sleep studies and they can't do anything to help her.

I don't have sleep apnea but this machine has me curious. How does it keep you form snoring and holding your breath?

pushes fresh air into your lungs at all times so if your palette relaxes and tightens your breathing passage (aka snoring) it floods the passage with oxygen preventing the snore.

For apnea if you stop breathing it pushes the same amount of air into your lungs and notes the event.

Basically the best sleep of your life and you won't wake up with a sore throat from having snored like a wild banshee for 8 hours.

Make sure you have all the life insurance you need before you get that sleep study done. Sleep apnea diagnosis is like having a DWI on your driving record when it comes to buying life insurance.

re: Sleep Apnea...Have anyone of you had this?
I had a sleep study done Dec 23, 2020. I have mild to moderate sleep apnea. I have a CPAP machine and absolutely love it.

I had a hemorrhagic stroke in 2017 and was told by my doctors that I am at a high risk of having another, if I don't get my sleep apnea treated. So here I am.

I just got diagnosed with it. I’ve worked out my whole life and at 55 I’m at 13% body fat. So instead of your rude comments, if you don’t know what your talking about, save it.

You’re wrong, do your research before you state false facts. Apnea is not dependent on weight or snoring.
