[Equipment] Is Bipap S / T automatic?

RE: Is Bipap S / T automatic?
I want to see nightly charts as you posted. You have many events turned off.
In the lower left and lower right you have dropdowns for events and charts, make sure everything is green on both and try again please.

RE: Is Bipap S / T automatic?
Your current settings are 25 cm IPAP and 14 cm EPAP. The difference from IPAP-EPAP= 11.0 cm which is Pressure Support (PS).

With PS so high, the ventilation is removing too much carbon dioxide from your blood, and this reduces your respiratory drive causing the central apnea. To solve this problem, Bonjour recommends you change your settings to IPAP 18.0, EPAP 14.0. Also, due to limitations with your version of Sleepyhead, we do not know machine settings. Are you using BiPAP S or BiPAP ST mode? If you are using ST mode, what is the timed backup rate in breaths per minute (BPM). Using the backup rate may help you to trigger breaths when central apnea occurs.

What you really need is the new version of Oscar which is currently in beta testing. Your machine is poorly supported by Sleepyhead and the current version of OSCAR. Bonjour is the best one to help you with that problem.

A backup rate of 10 BPM is appropriate for your respiration rate of 13 BPM. What was your diagnosis? The BiPAP ST is a therapy machine for individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or hypoventilation problems. It is not a good therapy device for central apnea. We can help you better if we understand why you are using a BiPAP ST.

We need to differentiate between obstructive apnea and central apnea. The ST does treat obstructive apnea well, but you must avoid large differences between IPAP and EPAP. The normal pressure support is 4-cm, but as we noted, you had yours set to 11 cm which will cause central apnea. We really need to turn that down and use a setting for EPAP of 14 and IPAP of 18.
