    How accurate is Fitbit in determining the various sleep stages.

    My sleep specialist has told me that I should not count on the accuracy of Fitbit in determining how much time I have spent in various sleep stages: rem, light, deep, etc. His theory is that it can only track movement. I have been trying to see if I can determine quality of sleep as well as length. So is fitbit accurate? or does anyone else know of any other ideas?

  • Increased wakeful events when using BiPap

    I’m a paraplegic with OSA. My belief is that the inspiratory phase is so fast, even the slowest setting is 600 ms (.6 of a second!), that it causes a spasm in my body and thus the more wakeful events. I’m more tired using a BiPap than without. Any suggestions? TIA.

    Hello. First post. Can anyone recommend a weight loss specialist who can help develop a plan for someone with severe OSA? Someone in either DC or Richmond, Virginia, would be ideal. PensiveRealist

    CPAP user

    Do I need a CPAP sanitizer? Does anyone have one and does it work well. One writer said the UV light does not sanitize well, what is the truth?

    Can't sleep

    I have been struggling with falling asleep at all. I have resorted to taking prescription zolpidem( ambian generic) but really would like to know what the underlying issue is. I did a sleep study but they said I had mild sleep apnea but not needing a machine yet. Really don't want one anyways! lol However, I feel like I never hit that deep sleep and my brain just will not shut off and never wake up feeling rested. Anyone have any ideas? I have tried natural and over the counter with no luck.
