Help Understanding my Machine
#1
Hello.  I have a REMstar Pro C-Flex+ made by Philips Respironics.  I'm trying to figure out if I have the settings right for maximum air flow, as the past several weeks the airflow seems insufficient and wakes me up regularly.  The user manual says it has three available therapy modes:  CPAP which maintains a constant pressure throughout the night, Auto-Trial which automatically adjusts the pressure based upon my breathing (this would have elapsed since I've had the machine for many years) and CPAP-check mode.

I don't know which mode the machine is currently set to and need your guidance in figuring that out.

Any help MUCH appreciated.

Thanks!

Order the Provider's manual here:

This will show you everything you want to know about your machine and how to change pressure.

also download sleepyhead, your machine uses a sd card and it will show your treatment.
Going by the internet, your machine will adjust the pressure every 30 days to fine tune. Depending on your budget, you can get this one working right, or buy a later fully automatic one
