"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 Is my app out of date, or my machine?"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…"

Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?

HiI was diagnosed with severe sleep apnoea Jan 2017 after hiring a device from Hope2sleep. Think I had this problem for around 10 years. I eventually got my cpap machine in August 2017. I have had a few ups and downs, and had my machine adjusted a couple of times. I get on ok with the full mask (except when it was very hot this summer, where a few nights I found that I had taken it off without knowing I did) Hospital said they were happy with me, and they have me down for a yearly…See More

Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Apnea and muscle weakness?
"Yes, mixed feelings are understandable at the thought of sleeping with a mask on, but once you feel the benefits of the therapy then you'll not want to sleep without it. Make a note or download this page from the website with tips for when you…"

Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Apnea and muscle weekness?
"Hi Judy.  So glad our screening test convinced your GP to refer you to the sleep clinic, even though it's a shame some people have to go to these lengths.  Hopefully in time more GP's will become aware of how common this is and…"

Apnea and muscle weekness?

I hired a sleep apnea test from hope 2 sleep in January this year, and it showed I had severe sleep apnea. My GP finally believed me and refered me to a hospital sleep clinic, which I attented in April.I have an appointment in August to collect my first cpap machine.I wanted to ask can sleep apnea affect muscle strength?  Last November I got back pain, which I managed for a few days, but then had to stop work, but it still got worse and took painkillers for it . The pain subsided after a couple…See More

NHS or Private to get diagnosis to determine treatment

Hi,  With the help of a hope2sleep screening test indicating I may have moderate sleep apnea, I am hopefully going to get my GP to finally agree to refer me to a sleep specialist (I have been trying for 6 months).  I have some concerns over how long…See More

Sleep2snore replied to Edam's discussion APAP or BIPAP
"An APAP with EPR is almost Bipap. The Sleep Centre would know from their readings if you would be better with another type of machine, if you had a home study you need to take it up with your GP and raise it with your Sleep Centre."

Sleep2snore replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"EPR just reduces the pressure when you breathe out, this makes it easier to breathe out when on higher pressure. Current thought is that the higher setting the EPR is the higher pressure is required, however I have not found this, but it does affect…"
