Any setting changes when adding O2 to CPAP
#1
I have a ResMed Airsense 10 Autoset. Today I got a Respironics Everflo which will inject 2 liters per minute of O2 into the heated mask hose as it leaves the CPAP machine. Will the CPAP machine automatically adjust its pressures to account for the pressure from the 2 liters per minute to maintain the CPAP pressures in the hose at the 8 and 5 settings?

I hope my description above is clear. I didn't know if there were any manual adjustments needed and I couldn't find any info in the ResMed clinician manual.

Thanks

Yes, it will work as planned. I induce 3 LPM of O2 into the CPAP line of my ResMed S9.
(It works because the flow rates from the CPAP blower far exceed the small amount of oxygen flow.)

Thanks for quick reply. I will be using the O2 for the 1st time tonight -- to hopefully help address the poor SpO2 results on my pulse oximetry overnight test with my CPAP running.
