Meanwhile I have discovered that my sleepDoc changed the parameters. I had been waking from too much pressure so apparently he set the pressure to a steady 11 instead of variable. It starts at 7 during the falling asleep level then moves up to 11. I think I liked it better when it was variable, though it may just need some getting used to.
I wanted to go into the settings, but can't get into them. It's like I'm locked out. The only options available in settings are mask type and checking for mask leakage, nothing to set up the machine itself - yet I watched him go into it and change it. Is there something special that needs to be clicked on to get into settings? I've tried different buttons, even pressing more than one at a time, but there doesn't seem to be a way to get in.
Maybe it's because the machine is rented instead of owned, though I should still be able to adjust it myself instead of having to make an appointment each time. The technicians are only in my area once a week, on Fridays, and the sleep Doc doesn't see patients for adjustments, only for interpretations. (and adjustments if needed at the time of interpretation). I'll give these settings a try until I can see the tech guy, but I really would like to adjust them on my own.
