RE: Aircurve10 VAuto Settings
considering your clear airway events, you can try setting trigger to high, then very high if necessary. vauto isn't designed to treat ca but higher trigger settings seem to help a bit.

considering your flow limitations, (which aren't bad but do show up in the 95%tile column,) you could incrementally raise min pressure support. note that could result in more clear airway events & aerophagia.

did you have central or clear apnea events during your sleep test? how long have you used cpap, apap or bilevel? answers may help determine if your ca is native or pressure induced / treatment emergent.

Sorry, I don't recall the defaults for the VAuto Ti Min/Max and trigger. Never used it. I'll have to defer to others that have that info. How's the comfort level? I did see you had that aerophagia & etc. issue.

RE: Aircurve10 VAuto Settings
I’m really clueless on all of this. I started cpap last  March and I couldn’t tolerate it so they switched me to the bilevel. I really can’t remember my diagnosis so I’ll get that from my doc. If all you think I have some more serious issues going on I can make a doctors appointment. I ordered a neck collar, not sure if that will make a difference. What  are you looking at to see that I have shallow breathing?

Minute vent. is one possible, it's the one with a teal trace line. At least that one shows that could be considered a bit low.

RE: Aircurve10 VAuto Settings
sleeprider referred above to your tidal volume at 280 ml which is low for most but not too far from the 300 to 400ml that would be closer to the ideal for your gender & height. imo, ca is the main problem I see in your chart. your pressure is low so unless you're super sensitive the ca is probably not pressure induced. that may be better determined by finding out if you had central apnea in your sleep test without cpap. your low min pressure support doesn't really fit with need for bilevel either so maybe they felt your other issues called for it. best ask them about that. if you had ca before cpap (in your sleep test) you might need an asv (adaptive servo ventilator). get a full copy of your sleep test results, not just the summary. I had to ask 3 times before getting mine. many summaries I've seen ignore most everything except obstructive apnea.

RE: Aircurve10 VAuto Settings
Your mean values for tidal volume and minute ventilation are somewhat low for an average person, but you are 5’2” and weigh 115, and the desirable values for an individual do depend on the size of the body's frame. When Sleeprider swings by next, he can tell you what he thinks.

Tidal volume is a measure of how much air you breathe in and out in a single breath, and minute ventilation is a measure of how much air you move in and out during one minute -- so MV also depends on your respiration rate, or how many breaths you take inn one minute.

I would suggest you check to see whether you have the default settings I listed above, and then leave your settings as they are. It's very good that you're finding these more comfortable, and with less aerophagia, so let it all settle in for a week at least, maybe longer.
