I have a ResMed S9 VPAP S system and my first settings of 9 to 13 were too high and waking me up. At first meeting, the doctor had them lowered to 6 and 10. I missed my second meeting due to car problems and was rescheduled over two weeks later. I am calling them for earlier session today and will address these questions with my doctor, but believe in the sharing of information. I am experiencing two problems, major leaks and the pressures are showing 9 to 13 again waking me up.
My question(s) are:
Is there multiple settings on my machine, like a regular and maximum setting?
Why do I only sleep well for 4-5 hours at a time? When I arise to void, most times I am unable to get back to sleep for at least an hour, sometimes not at all.
Any and all tips appreciated.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Hang in there, someone will be along to help you with your machine settings.
Much success to you with your CPAP therapy and finetuning it.
Thanks for the welcome, trish6hundred. Received no response but solve two (2) of the three (3) problems I have encountered;
used mask liner so stop leaks, fabricated a chin strap from a headband to stop dry throat due to breathing thru mouth. Now I seem to be suffering from dry eye syndrome, my eyes water profusely upon awakening and my sight seems to be suffering. Sleeping better most nights but eyes and sight are now bugging me. Is there a mask maker that combines chin strap and full face mask features in one unit? Still trying to move forward. kenes
