You would think so. Annoyed-and-disappointed

As I attempted to pick my xPAP up from the same place where my sleep study was done, I took the opportunity to get a copy of my script for future reference. They checked a boxes next to both " Respironics System One Auto" and "Other". The pressure setting is "CPAP 12cm H2O",

ASM says they request the PRS1 Auto for everyone this way, but that I really don't need the Auto part as the doctor prefers constant pressure. The DME take this to mean that no-one really needs the Auto and gives them the Pro. Most people don't know the difference and the Sleep Center doesn't seem to care. Dont-know

RE: Intro
New user to the forum and just started CPAP therapy on June 14th. Had two sleep studies in 2012, first one was inconclusive since I did not sleep at all due to the staff talking loudly outside my room. Second one done at Cleveland Clinic's Sleep Lab which was actually at a hotel!!. Tech said yes you definitely got sleep apnea but I can't tell you anything else you need to call your doctor.

So I call only to be told by "someone" wish I knew their name. Once again they told me inconclusive so I never followed up. BIG MISTAKE. It is now 4 years later and I have Very Severe OSA of 120 AHI. Had a few recent trips to the ER etc. Finally for in to see a new Pulmonologist at Cleveland Clinic to find out all my issues are being cause by OSA.

Needless to say since starting treatment, I feel like a new man!! My AHI ranges now from 2.2 for 5.2. I have my pressures now set at 10-15. EPR on 2 and Humidity at 4. Thinking about turning EPR off to see if I get better results.

Would anyone suggest I leave EPR alone or go ahead and turn it off? This board is awesome by the way!!!
