Thanks to this board I discovered how to use the auto titration function on my RemStar Auto with A-Flex (560P).... But the results were kind of puzzling. The CPAP mill set it up with a fixed 8.0 psi and I used that for about a year with an average AHI of 7.7.
Then I discovered this group, found out about the auto function, turned it on, and the machine did its titration thing..
Over the next couple of months the machine took me as high as 14 psi and my average AHI came way down to 3.69 but here's the mysterious part: The machine seems to have settled on 8.5 psi as the right dose and I'm still at a low AHI... The Sleepyhead readout says Min, Max, Average and 90% pressure are all at 8.5...which is just a little higher than where i started....
So what gives? Four months ago, 8 psi was not enough. Now at 8.5 I'm doing great. Did my body adjust? Or what?
"The Sleepyhead readout says Min, Max, Average and 90% pressure are all at 8.5"
That does not sound like you're in auto mode.
