Sleep Disorders/cpap and insomnia


greetings karel, every night now for 2 weeks i've been only getting 5 hours on my cpap machine. after 5 hours of sleep on the machine i wake up and stay awake the rest of the night. what i want to know is why does this happen and how can i fix this problem soon. ive tried no caffeine, not using the computer past 9pm and tryptophan.

I suggest you contact your physici and tell him.  He should change the settings on the machine.  Apparently the pressures are too high and they are not letting you sleep thru the  night. Or you can also contact the company that delivered your machine and ask to speak to the cpap department and ask to speak to the respiratory therapist who sets up the cpap machines and he might be able to troubleshoot it over the phone with you. feel free to email again. Karel
