HYPOPNEA [and EPR]
#31
I think this progress is consistent with the discussion we have been having that EPR (pressure support) is an effective therapy for flow limitation and hypopnea, provided the minimum and maximum pressure is raised. This keeps EPAP in a therapeutic range and gives you that pressure support when you need it for flow limitation. We are actually using your machine like a bilevel now, and this might be an argument that a bilevel machine like the Aircurve 10 VAuto would be more appropriate.

As to why the OP would have a good night.  A wise person once said on this forum, "one night does not a trend make."  So there could be any number of reasons why you had a good night.  It may or may not have been the EPR.  Monitor at the same settings for a week or two and then you have some more solid data to go on.

Merged the two threads, deleted a few posts, and edited one. There. Done.

To the OP, if you have one thread going where people are helping you with a problem, just keep it going within the same thread, even if it seems to drift from the original topic. If it needs to be split, a Moderator will take care of it. This way, all your answers are together and folks can read along.

So much for good numbers. I go from one of my best nights to one of my worst with the same settings. Just don't get it.

My numbers keep going up for some reason, l

Some nights I get Cheyne Stokes breathing if the machine is right.

Can someone tell me should I lower the EPR or raise it to help with the Cheyne Stokes  which I guess causes high lever of carbon dioxide?


My question  EPR now is on 1 so which way should I go?

Still trying to get the ASV machine but I guess I need some prove that I need it.
