I think AAM stands for automated airway management. I could be wrong. I believe I have the same or a very similar machine. I don't see why you couldn't have the upper bounds be higher incase you need more pressure.I think six is as low as it gets.

Ahh, thanks for the input Kato. Smile

RE: Please need some input regarding new PR auto bipap machine.
Kato, Yes I assumed auto mode, and these settings were based of his previous matching factoring in PS and preventing runaway pressure and to contain initial runaway which would allow us to make appropriate modifications after initial use. He didn't go to 16 previously so it is safe. My max is 25 though I rarely go over 12. FYI 4 is the min, not 6.
As I said, I expect changes, this is just a start.

Everything is snores and flow limitations. You need more pressure support. Increase PS to 4.0. Increase EPAP min to 7.0.

Notice that even though we increased minimum pressure and PS, the median pressure is lower. There are minor reductions in OA and H and FL. I would like to see minimum and maximum PS set to 4.5. In OSCAR, you can turn off VS2 which does not affect machine pressure, and the other more relevant events will be clearer.

Okay, I will turn off VS2 and change min PS to 4.5.  Thank you. Smile
