I’m excited to get my hands on this data. I downloaded the Sleepyhead software in the middle of the night last night. I managed to wear the CPAP (APAP? since it’s in auto mode?) for nearly eight hours, but I didn’t sleep so much as just dozed on and off. I found it hard to breathe through my nose at times, and at other times I think the machine changing pressure (or something else about the stream of air) woke me up just as I was dozing off, and at other times the noises were distracting. But actually at other times things were quite relaxing and cozy, especially when I got my breathing steady and with the bit of heat coming through.
The machine’s pressure was all over the place; from the few times I glanced at it, I saw 5.6, 11.8, 9.2, 12.7… According to the statistics in the morning, the AHI was 0.0, so that’s really good. Hopefully it is that good when I sleep for real! I would be interested in understanding exactly what makes the pressure go up and down and how it decides what level is needed at any given time.
Surprisingly, I’d say I’m pretty wide awake today considering it wasn’t the best night’s sleep. So that’s a good sign.
Of course, this morning I was so distracted with all this stuff that I forgot to bolus for breakfast. Cue 30.9 mmol/L (556 mg/dl) blood sugar. I possibly left my pinp disconnected for over an hour as well. Oops. Still trying to get out of the 20s mid-morning.
I am looking forward to tonight and to eventually downloading that data. I may wait till I have my own machine because I’m a bit paranoid of messing up their SD card and having someone get mad at me.
