Quote:At a pressure of 8, it's not likely you're having much if any leak issues, but it's also possible your body doesn't feel like it's getting enough air, and you are "fighting" the machine. That being the case, a small increase in the pressures might solve your problems. But first you need to know how well your machine is controlling your apnea where it's at.


My apneas were neutralized at a pressure of 7CM, but my doctor kicked the pressure up to 8CM.

Don't know. Sounds like you have confidence in your doc, so I'd check there.

In regards to watching TV or listening to the radio etc., check out the TV or clock radio, many have an auto-off that you can set for 15-45 minutes. This way when you do fall asleep it won't wake you up again later.

In regards to CFlex it is really only an exhale thing that allows you to exhale easier against the pressure.
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.

If it works - do it!
