Keep bumping up the pressure a little at a time. You'll get there.

will try 9 tonight.

With EPR off, it's getting a little harder to breathe out though. But at least the mask isnt bouncing all over my face...

RE: Amara view leaking bad
tried 9-12 tonight, ahi was 1, for the first time, half events were flow limitations, with 1/4 OA and the other 1/4 half hypopneas and centrals.
Usually hypopneas were predominant.

The APAP always bounces pressure up and down though, I wonder if I should just set it to CPAP 9 or keep it 9-12 apap. I pretty much just get the "saw tooth" pattern going 9-10-9-10-9 for no reason all night.

Will try again 9-12 tonight and report.

The up and down pressure is a dreamstation thing. It checks to see if a different pressure will improve your flow rate. It doesn't really hurt anything unless it's disturbing your sleep. If so maybe a fix pressure would work better for you.

.78 last night but with a cluster of reras fl and hypopneas during 20 min, rest of the night looked ok.

Never really had much reras flag before.

I'm having the same bad time with Amara View, but I really, really want to make it work, since it is the most comfortable. What is EPR? I have the same problem with it moving around. I will get it just right, but in the night I will waken when it is at higher pressure, and it seems to slide around as it inflates. I have a small size but wonder if it is still too big (I have a small face). The leaks around my chin are the worst. Help!

I am getting it better lately.
The stubble really makes it leak though, but I don't want to shave every night...

.56 last night, 3 Fl, 1 OA, 2 H, 1 CA, Probably not worth changing anything at .56

Nope! That's as good as it gets.

got .91 last night, with FL, OA, CA, and H all even, 1-2 events each...

But I guess that I'm just going to get some events no matter what and at .91 it's probably not worth it changing anything.

Should I even bother? With low numbers like that, percentages don't really mean anything anyway, with 2CA, 3FL, 2H, 2O, 1PB....

AHI really dropped since I jumped min to 9 and set EPR to 0
Maybe I'll try 10 and see how it feels. Maybe 10 with EPR 1....
