Went in for my 'split-study' sleep study last night. Slept 3 hours, woke and got mask put on and slept another 3.5 hours.
Results? "I'm pretty sure they'll want to bring you back for a different type of study."
Which indicated to me the direction was "ASV". "Yes, pretty much."
Dual multiple complex. "Well, something like that."
I couldn't narrow him down. "We can't say much; the doctors get irate if they hear that technicians are trying to do their job."
So, it sounds like the more expensive version of machines, as WhiteBeard described.
Good news? They found it, and can correct it. Moreover, I 'probably' won't need compressed oxygen, so the extra noise will go away. The bad news? My meds are probably interfering and causing some of the issues. And the 'fix' is a lifetime of using that machine and mask.
Remember that you guys. Your choice of meds can cause or interfere with sleep apnea. As your doctor whether your choice of narcotics might interfere with your sleep pattern(s). It would have been good if there were an instruction manual on what to do when getting into all this stuff; I guess it is getting written here in the form of posts :)
Easy Pain Day to everyone.
