Average CPAP Pressure?
Hi -

Curious to know what your pressure is - I'm wondering if there's a mean number with a small band of error?

Thanks!

Rich

Thanks!
Richard

RE: Average CPAP Pressure?
Don't put too much stock in others pressure readings Richard. I keep mine posted in my "details," as do many others, but what's right for me is not necessarily right for anybody else........... I mean, everyone's different. Except me. I'm not different. I'm the same.

If you look at peoples sigs you'll see that the pressures are all over the place. I regularly see them from 5 to 20 cmH2O.

RE: Average CPAP Pressure?
I,m using an AutoSet (no ramp or EPR) with minimum pressure set at 9 which feel most comfortable for me after numerous trials and maximum pressure set at 14. The machine start at 9 and then adjust the pressure as needed during the night, not higher than 14 or lower than 9
