I wish the sleep study reports were standardized. My reports, which I obtained from my sleep dr., are basically letters to my family dr. summarizing the results of the study. It also includes recommended treatment. It has some of the typical terms we see in the definitions of sleep terms but it just is not clear. Some sort of “normal” range to use as a comparison would be nice. An indication of the difference between moderate and severe would also be helpful.
As far as the xPAP machine an ability to adjust the pressure within a fixed range, say 1 to 3 cm of water would also be nice. This would give some of us the ability to evaluate how we feel, based on changes we make in pressure. It would also be nice when we lose or gain weight or evaluate the effectiveness of mask types.
