DESPERATE & TERRIFIED-Need BiPap or Cpap HELP
#51
RE: DESPERATE & TERRIFIED-Need BiPap or Cpap HELP
As ajack said, the Philips BiPAP auto machine can produce variable pressure support. Interesting that your doctor suggested a range of 4 to 8 in pressure support. I don't think the fixed pressure support of the Resmed will preclude getting good treatment. The Philips machine tends to keep pressure support near the minimum setting unless there are hypopnea, and then it increases PS. Since hypopnea has not been a big feature of your sleep apnea, it may not be important. It will be interesting to see what your results are as you begin to adapt to higher pressure support. Your comments do point to a possible need to increase the IPAP max setting to allow more room to address the obstructive apnea.
