Dreamstation Bipap user - Thanks, notes, and Followon questions
#11
Next follow up is in July.  Going back through the sleephead data, my resp. Rate from CPAP start 3/30/2017 to last night 6/15/17 averaged 19.  The lowest it ever went was 14.

You could wait till July, the main thing is it's being followed up on.
I think they all interact to get the minute ventilation you need. More volume of air per breath= less breaths to get the same volume per minute. I would look at tidal volume as the main guide and something BPAP will directly affect. It will also get more data for your doctor. Keep a diary or pics of sleepyhead

From machine or sleepyhead, set the min CPAP 1cm below median pressure. Or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings
