Kath Hope replied to Savannah A.'s discussion Sleep Centre in UK that measures UARS
"Great to hear you're having an in-patient sleep study Savannah.  You may not need to investigate UARS either, because if a simple study (probably pulse oximetry) has picked up an issue that warrants an in-patient study, then it's…"

"Dear Sleep2snore, thanks for your reply and apologies for my late response. In the case that UARS is detected, may I enquire what you mean regarding a more complex machine? Are you referring to BiPAP machines? Many thanks!"

"That is a difficult one, but if you have a Polysomnography done a good Sleep Doctor should spot the signs, however, it is often missed unless the patient mentions it or ENT (if you attended there first before referral) suspects you might have…"

NEEDED: CPAP nasal pillow style mask & headgear - FX, DREAMWEAR or any similar style

Does anyone have a nasal pillow style mask & headgear they don't like or don't use? Mine vanished somewhere between Vancouver & Glasgow & I didn't notice till I got to Kirky.  I have a spare one at home, but that's not helping me while I…See More

"Hi Andy. That's a good first night and sounding positive already. You may find your AHI comes down over the next few nights. Ideally we're looking for it to be up to 5 which is classed as 'normal.'  Your other goods will be…"

First night with CPAP

So last night was my first with my new CPAP machine (a Philips DreamStation with an Amara style mask), and got on surprisingly well. It took me a while to fall asleep and woke briefly a handful of times in the night but I would say it was very…See More

Judy Y replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"Thanks for your answer Kath. The app I have is Philips Dreamapper . It tells me minimum/maximam/ 90% pressure, My AHI and mask fit, Hours usage. I cant see anything about obstructive or centrals. Is my app out of date, or my machine?"

Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"I don't think those symptoms are specific to central sleep apnoea.  Your app should tell you if those apnoeas are obstructive or  centrals.  It sometimes says 'CA.'  Sometimes when people first wake it takes a…"
