AHI gone a bit wrong

RE: AHI gone a bit wrong
Increasing EPR without adding the same value to your starting IPAP pressure will most likely increase the hypopneas or OAs.  OAs and hypopnea are controlled by your EPAP pressure. The EPR feature subtracts its value from the set pressure.

RE: AHI gone a bit wrong
Its a simple math issue..  The clinic has limited staff to see thousands of patients.  They will never be able to keep up.  

They are going to ask you "well how is it going"?  As long as you say good.  They will say see ya bye bye now...

If you say Oh its bad the say hummm..  Well the machine should fix you..humm.  Oh wait your AHI numbers are below 5, oh you are fine.. bye bye now..

Good luck
Come back and tell us what they said..
Thank you,

So if I increase EPR then do I need to increase the minimum APAP pressure, it's currently at 7. What do you suggest?
