Hypopneas occurring with AirCurve 10 ASV
#1
Hello,

I have been using an ASV device, a ResMed Aircurve ASV for about 3 weeks.  I was having many clear airway apneas (>5 / Hr) using a BiPAP, so I switched to an ASV.  The clear airway apneas have completely cleared.  And I am having no obstructive apneas. 

But now I get 3-7 hypopneas / hr.  Do I need to adjust the pressures?  I noticed on CPAP hypopneas occurred when the pressure was too low.  Mine seem to often occur with high pressures but not always.

Here is a link.

(I could not find the help page on IMGUR.  They seem to have changed something to create a thumbnail link. If you know where the link is I'll bookmark it.)

Thanks in advance,
Ricknfli

This problem was solved by increasing the max PS and decreasing the minimum PS. See my next post and replies.
