AHI 7.9 need help adjusting
#21
Justbreath:  Have you tried a Cervical Collar to extend (lift) the chin, a lot of people find that it helps reduce OA events, as for me, I never had OA until I put on a FFM and the strap pulled my chin downwards.  Once I  put on a collar my OA events went to zero but left the CA events out there and made it easier to demonstrate the need for a BiPAP and then ASV titration study.

Just a regular cervical collar, for me the trick was not to get it too large since it isn't treating a neck injury, it just trying to keep the chin up enough to keep the airway straight.

From machine or charts for auto-cpap, set the min 1cm below median pressure, or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings
