As a starter with this machine which you know perhaps
You could suggest the max min pressures or is it worth
Doing a gradual increase from say 6 max   4 min and daily 
Increase  the 6 by 0.5  up to ???
Any comment from a claustrophobic !

Robertc,
Just a suggestion without seeing or knowing what your settings are currently...
I would set the minimum to 7 and maximum to 14. ResiFlex set to 3.

The increase in minimum pressure and the ResiFlex set to 3 should give you a better feel for exhaling without struggling. Anyone would feel claustrophobic if they couldn’t breathe out easily.

I’m not familiar with your machine, but there might be a mask setting on your Cpap. Be sure it’s set to nasal mask.

We have software available for your machine here:
