According to AASM titration protocol if pressure threshold of 15 cm H2O is reached - switch to Bi-level

How do I switch to Bi-Level???

I believe Zonk was talking about a Bo-Level machine, a BiPAP. WE have CPAP, APAP (Auto), BiPAP (Bi-Level), VPAP (Variable), and it seems I am missing one, but I just woke up! If your sleep study shows a pressure threshold of 15 they should prescribe a bi-pap according to standard protocol.
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

You would need to switch machines! Bilevel (BiPAP) machines are more expensive.

If you have pain and your doctor says all is normal, you need a new doctor.

Do you have insurance? If so, you can go to their website and find a list of doctors, ENT doctors, and sleep doctors who are in their network.

Do yourself a favor and find a new doctor!
