I haven't yet committed to purchasing the Aveo. Mike is right. IP addresses don't lie. Unfortunately, all kinds of people lie. This includes some members of a former God-like group that we now refer to as Doctors. Present company most certainly EXCLUDED. A sleep study is not something that I have ever had access to. However, I'm uncertain that a clinical study in a strange bed wouldn't be of too much value, at least for THIS patient. I HAVE had several home studies and they have proven satisfactory in diagnosis and occasional titration. My uncorrected pulse ox gets down into the low 60's.
If I test-pilot the Aveo, My pulse ox alarm will be set quite high. I am thinking that even if it doesn't work to prevent apneic events, I may use it in conjunction with the CPAP so that I won't be snoring while on my back. (that'll bring my sleeping positions to 2 possible, as I have had surgery on my right shoulder and must now only sleep on my left side.)
When I tell people that my compliance is 100%, they congratulate me. It is not cause for congrats, because I am unable to sleep lying down without the pressurized air. I awake every minute, gasping for air. Hell of a way to spend the night.
Malcolm, I use Parkland Resp for my DME provider, here on the Southside. I recently looked into an F&P machine that was to cost $1350-. Online, the same machine can be shipped for less than $500-. Of course, consultation, etc. isn't included, but I am an old hand at this CPAP stuff, and I can always go in with any questions and get them answered for free.
In any event, remember to eschew obfuscation.
