I would like you to try EPR = 3 tonight and likely for several days.

Very important is how you feel,  Which is better EPR=2 or EPR = 3?

We are looking for a balance between obstructive and central apneas where you feel best.

should I also reduce the Mini pressure?

Keep everything else the same.  The change to EPR 3 will make your minimum EPAP pressure only 5.0 cm (8.0/5.0), but if we see a need to increase the minimum pressure from 8 to 9.0, we can make that call after the first night.

Tonight I will do as you said.

Last night's chart. Can my doctor access the detailed waveforms via AirView or just the AHI?

Did the machine fail to catch events? It appears to me during most times, the waveforms just don't look normal though no event was fagged. Can these articles explain?: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5406947/

Please also increase my attachment quota, so I can attach more pictures.

You may want to go into your UserCP to delete some older attachments if you're running out of space. There isn't a setting to add more. You are given a set amount dependant on your member level.

As for what the doc can access on waveforms. I don't know what he/she has set up to track your therapy.

The Respironics machines can at times have a reaction time to some events that is the source of less than optimal therapy.

I am now using a brand new ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet Standard.

Yes I see that now. I referred to your user left panel, which should be updated to reflect that change.

I'll leave that deciphering of the waveform to better informed.

Typically all the doc will access is the summary info. He does have access to data that is somewhat less precise than what you get via the SD card and OSCAR.

I would ride these settings for a bit.
Bump your flow Limit chart above your leak chart. It is very important for pressure changes on a ResMed.

I have also been using AutoSet Standard. And I found this article may be helpful: http://accurateclinic.com/wp-content/upl...a-2014.pdf

Does the waveform for the previous post look like normal breathing though no event was flagged.
