[CPAP] machine changing pressure with age 16K hrs
#1
My question for the forum is, does anyone have experience or knowledge on the possibility of Resmed machine having one pressure on startup and fading by morning. My unit seems to do that, but I don't know how to tell for sure. Unit is 5.5 yrs old with 16000 hours use.

Have you hooked it up to a manometer? Or you just going by how it feels?

The more we use our CPAP, the more we get used to the pressure. So while it may feel all strong when we turn it on at bed time, in the morning it may feel much less powerful. But it is just as strong, it just feels weaker.
