Any chages to be made to CPAP machine? No real guidance
Bumped up the min pressure last night from 5-7 and changed ramp time from auto to 30min. I included last nights data and overview of the last 30days


Let me know if there's anything else needed. Appreciate any insights you can give.

RE: Any chages to be made to CPAP machine? No real guidance
You have positional apnea and need to avoid chin-tucking to keep your airway open. This may be as simple as removing all but one pillow from under your head, to using a soft cervical collar to keep your airway straighter. I think you should go ahead and increase minimum pressure to 9.0, maximum 14.0 with EPR full-time at 3. Read our wiki on hte soft cervical collar and positional apnea linked in my signature. I think you will quickly see the pattern of clustered obstructive apnea and leaks that seem to characterize this problem. http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...cal_Collar
