Thanks for the info about the new desat criteria! Extremely useful. I'm going to take that up with the doc when I next meet with her.

Possibly, but the 2-3 times in the last two years that I've managed to get more than six hours of sleep in a night were followed by precious days of non-fatigue. I suspect the main problem is that I'm simply not getting enough
sleep. But we'll know more after the full study.

For me too! I really
want this solved, not just for dementia prevention, but because not getting enough (good) sleep has profoundly affected my life.
I almost always have to take a nap in the afternoon. The world becomes a blur to me, and then I have to sleep for about 1/2 an hour to clear things up.
Same here, though, weirdly, I get tired a few hours after waking, and that's when I have my nap.
I'm pretty sure there's some kind of nuero-toxin cleaning going on while I sleep, although 1/2 hour might not be enough time according to some studies.
Do you happen to have references handy?
I definitely enter REM sleep often when I nap in the afternoon because sometimes I wake up in the middle and feel it happening.
Same here, but it's the deeper kind of sleep, not REM sleep, when the glymphatic (cleansing) system kicks in, no? (That would argue for 30 mins. not being long enough.)
