APAP better than CPAP for REM Apnea?
#31
first off, it looks really good. you need not change your settings.

but, if you wish the machine can vary your pressure throughout the night. one suggestion would be to have your pressure be somewhat lower, and allow it to climb a bit higher. maybe minimum 12 and maximum 16. you might be able to eliminate those few OA events shown in a cluster about 5:45 to 6:15.

QAL, I have a CPAP and not an APAP and cannot vary pressure - or have I got that wrong?
