As a new poster I want to express my personal gratitude and appreciation for all the time and experience that many have put into their posts on this forum that have helped me so much already.
Currently I am doing nightly battle with my second hybrid mask. I actually stopped treatment for over two months because it seemed like I was losing more sleep than I was gaining. With new resolve I have 4-5 different masks on order and I will get this problem fixed.
Having been inspired by some of the forum responders to look closely at my numbers from my Bipap-auto I have started writing down what the machine tells me as far as certain statistics about my sleep (on average for 7 days).
If there is a good post (or copy/paste) on what this info means and what are the good numbers to aim for; I would be grateful and feel free to be as technical as needed.
I will give my current numbers (7 day only) if anyone has a comment I am open (and not sensitive).
Specifically: I am looking for info on:
APN-HYP Index.........(3.3) (down from 5.0 two days ago)--is this per day or per hour?
System leak.............72.4 same question
90% pressure...........12.0/10.0...I have no clue about what these numbers mean. Is this Ipap/Epap?
I understand Sessions > 4 means: the number of times that I have had a sleep session with the machine over 4 hours.
in 7 days is a 2; in 30 days is a 7.
I know that my numbers will improve when I resolve the mask issues but what are good numbers? Can they be perfect?
