Bergie might be able to help. He knows a lot more about them than I do.

My sleep study results included a doc write up, graphs and tables. It had counts and %'s for apnea events, oxygen saturation, and a lot of other info.

Did they wake you up and put a mask on you? That's usually a good sign that you have sleep apnea problems.

Sorry I did'nt answere you sooner Vync, for some reason I been having problems on this site. I been getting popups from members posting, not getting notifications that I have a reply. This is my 3rd post today and your the first reply I've gotten. I even posted on "ask the geeks" and havn't heard from them either. Something is perty screwy goin on.lol. Anyway to answer your question about the mask, No they didn't. The final diagnosis said (1) Hypersomnia, unspecified and (2) Mild upper airway resistance syndrome. The reson for the study was to determine what causes me to have "sleeping attacks" in the middle of the day. I mean, I can be wide awake talking to someone and the attack hits me like a ton a bricks, to wear I have to lie down right then and there. Perty wierd huh. The report shows numbers and %'s, but I have no clue what they mean. One I did understand was the sleep efficiency was poor at 64.3%. A total of 15 obstructive apneas, 4 central apneas, and 1 hypopnea, which I have no idea what that is.

Do me a favor Vync! Can you reply back so I would know that this post is working. Thanks!

Cooter,

Did they mention a CPAP machine? If so, well then you know you have sleep apnea. I would not worry about the fancy numbers. If, you get a CPAP, use it. The first one that I got was set at 16, and then 9, now it will go back up to 13. Is yours SC? I know mine was, but the term "Sleep Apnea" was not invented, they just told you to sleep on your side when I was in.

I'm going for my second study tonight. The VA is paying and tonight they'll put the CPAP machine on and figure out the settings. Then they'll notify the VA and the VA will order me a machine, from their cheap factory, probably somewhere in China. Cheap f**king VA!!! Now I have to connect it to my PTSD, for SC.

Actually the VA uses some pretty nice machines and their selection of face gear or head wear isn't too bad.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
