Autoset set for CPAP
#1
I have a resmed 10 Autoset but its set in the CPAP mode with a constant pressure of 12. What is the advantage of this rather than setting it to a range? What is the disadvantage?

Straight pressure treats some folk better than a range as they are sensitive to the changes in pressure. Some need straight pressure without expiratory relief (EPR, AFLEX, CFLEX) Some of these even have CA in response to a pressure range.

Others have a better experience with a range of pressure so that they can stay lower until they need more (comfort)

YMMV

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
