Happy new year all!
I just got a replacement AirSense 10 (my on/off button broke on my old one) and the machine seems to be a lot more sensitive than the one I had before.
With the mask on, as soon as I inhale it ramps up instant air pressure. The only way to keep it from happening is to breathe very slowly.
It's set to auto ramp, but seems the pressure threshold is too low?
Ramp - Auto is supposed to detect when you have fallen asleep and then rise to the prescribed pressure. I don't know how it 'detects' you have fallen asleep but it appears you can 'fool' it. I don't use ramp and I haven't messed with it. If you need it, maybe set it to 5 minutes or however long you usually take to fall asleep. Do you have the right hose and mask type settings?
Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.
I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses.
Auto Ramp suppose to go on for 30 minutes, unless the machine figure out that you're asleep and then raise the pressure to treatment pressure
I don't believe it works as intended, on occasion when used Auto Ramp, pressure quickly reach minimum pressure while I'm wide awake
You would think, if the machine can figure out whether you're awake or asleep, could also not scoring apnea while you're awake
For this reason, to prevent the machine from scoring junk type apneas while awake, I use normal Ramp for 15 minutes set 10 as minimum pressure so give time to adjust mask fit, settle down on sleeping position, cough, scratch my nose or whatever
