I can't tell when there is pressure - good thing

I can't tell when there is pressure - good thing
Ok.   I can feel pressure begin but quickly do not notice it.   I have mine set to start at 12.5     I think this is excellent that I tolerate so well that I do not notice it after the first 4 or 5 seconds.   Anyone else like this?

Your right! That is excellent that you are adapting to Cpap therapy that quickly.

I remember when I first started, I thought a pressure of 4 was horrendous. I couldn’t comprehend how anyone could breathe with that pressure. Well needless to say, I adapted quickly enough too.

I think what’s interesting is waking up in the middle of the night, and reaching for your mask, because you are fairly certain that the machine isn’t on.

I started at 18 only because they couldn't get my machine to 19. No problems. (A lucky one)

That’s really great.  It means you have adapted well to the pressure.  I have to put my hand in front of the mask to make sure that the pressure is actually on.
