Welcome, Patrick! You are at the right place, if you want to learn more about your therapy.
How is your therapy working for you? If it is working great, your year's experience perhaps can help others. If not, there is plenty of help to be had from this web site.

Thanks, BabyDoc
Assuming you are a Pediatrician on CPAP, I'll thank you for the kind words. CPAP has worked fine until about 3-5 months ago: now, the afternoon droops have recurred. So, I'm investigating and joining this wonderful site, downloading the software, and going to start checking my data out. Will stay in touch for sure.

Welcome

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

Your machine is data capable. Try to download the ResScan or the Sleepyhead (or both) and seeing what your data is doing. It is not uncommon for the pressure to need adjusting.

Just follow the directions carefully for installing ResScan.
