Since you have Rescan, please apprize us of what your data looks like. AHI, leaks, types and prevalence of events. Also let us know what mode you are using your machine in. Is it CPAP, S, or auto? I suspect that it is S mode (bilevel mode). If it is auto mode, please let us know what pressures the machine sets for you. Actually charts would be best. A screen shot of your detailed charts from Rescan showing events, pressure, leaks, flow limitations, and snore.

Best Regards,

PaytonA

Hi brewski,

Since you're having trouble swallowing too much air, I suggest verifying the therapy mode is S (not Auto with a very high setting for Max Pressure).

Take care,

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
