"As of now I no longer have to use a chin strap.  I am anxious about the sleep study.  Wondering if I will be able to sleep WITHOUT the CPAP….even thought I hate it it is a part of every night now and is what I am used to.  "

"I had it on the same outpatient basis.  Much pain, no long term gain.  I did not have the annual repetition - that might or might not have made the difference. "

"Thanks, Mary~  Fingers are crossed.  My pressure is one point lower than when I began (7) and AHI is some lower (7 day average).  I am anxious about sleep study as I have not slept without CPAP in 2.5 years!   "

"Last procedure done!  This time he gave me meds to take before so less anxiety while waiting!  For the first time I was able to eat normal food on the way home after the procedure.  No pain after 12 hours.  If it only works.…"

"Some folks run their humidifiers in passover mode- not turning on the heat just letting the air blow over the water.  That would not give any heat though. "

"Interesting, I actually feel a little better when I don't use the humidifier, but the humidifier helps with sinuses. The cold air stuff's me up. Gonna try running heat and a nasal spray"

"I have both.  I use the chin strap with my Wisp and I also have a FFM if I choose to use that one. I'm a mouth breather.  I find nasal masks are easier to fit without leaks"

How to enable phillips remstar info area "7 day average AHI"

Went to see my sleep doc today.  Pressure was decreased to 9.  Changed by her assistant using data card.  Every time she does this other things change (that don't need changing)  I was able to read my AHI 7 day average and the doctor wanted me to watch since the pressure is less now. Does anyone know I how enable this setting in the info section?  Have called the doctor's office and no return call yet.

Drove back to Dr.'s office.  They did not know how to change the machine back to have "7 day average AHI " enabled.  Drove to DME company.  Owner of company (an RT) said e "did not have a clue" how to change back.  I had my machine AND data card with me.  So he shows me how to use the clinician's info area to look at.  The way I did normally was quicker and easier.  I was shocked he did not know how to change the machine back the way it was.  Then I asked for new white machine filter (allergies season) and he put them in an envelope for me.  Got home.... yep....wrong ones!  I hate incompetence in so called professionals.  Thanks for letting me rant!

I emailed Phillips Respironics, will see if they respond.  

Is that an M-Series APAP with A-Flex?

Yeah...thank you.  It is now fixed.  Still blows me away that the RT and owner of company did not know how to do this!
