My husband has been using the Philips Rem Star Pro for approx a year with a Quatro full face mask. His original pressure was set at 6%. He has been snoring and choking over the last few months and so has just had a new sleep study done (last night) Firstly, I was a little surprised that they did not want to even check his machine to see if it was working correctly, or even read the card. Surely the whole purpose of having a card in the machine that is recording this data is important to look at.
Anyway, the tech told my husband that he had finally got the pressure set at 12% and to me that seems a huge increase from 6% to 12%. Also the tech advised that the pressure is dependent on the mask type also. So now he has to go back to the Dr to read his test results and prepare a new script, but I am a little concerned about the huge increase in pressure and the fact that if the pressure depends on the type of mask, what was the point in them asking him to select 2 different ones for home use.
Is there software available that will read your card from the CPAP machine and tell you what is what if you do not have a degree in CPAP card reading?
Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
