[CPAP] Newbie looking for help/opinions please!
(Yesterday, 09:18 AM)Sleeprider Wrote: I forgot you're the one with the smart consultant that thinks one pressure works for all.  Your pressure requirement is high enough that you might even qualify for bilevel in the U.S.  Airplane mode will keep the meddlers from accessing your data, but you would eventually have to deal with them.  I see our medical system following the U.K. model, and I hope we can pull it back from the brink for fully social medicine.  Choice and individual rights matter.

Hi again folks , it's the human CPAP yo yo here!

Collar worn again and mask leak improved , however my AHI has gone up etc etc. Another bad night and i am getting slight leaks from time to time at the bridge of my nose. Quick question on mask adjustment guys , do you try to get the upper rubber portion that sits on the forehead as flat to the forehead as possible i.e top straps really pulled in and bottom to adjust?

Not convinced on the collar to as i have had excellent AHI scores on several nights when not wearing one.

Another thing that is confusing me is why is my median pressure stats continually going up more or less each day? also last night there was atleast 3 occasions when the upper pressure of 20 was not enough and the machine had reached it's limit!

So last night 50 apneas and 17 OSA plus 2 clear airways side sleeping with a collar on!

Please see my SH charts from last night and bestow me with your pearls of greatly appreciated wisdom.
