Cool Just another test
Hey Sleepster or any Moderators, Just finished my third test on the 2nd and now they have decided to scrap the Auto BiPap machine and go back to CPap with a set pressure of 12. Technologist says they do not know where the BiPap idea came from so 6 months later I am back to CPap with a set pressure. Is there any way to set my VAuto machine to 12 in order to see what happens?

RE: Just another test
If you go into the the clinician menu and make the IPAP and EPAP the same (12), you'll have the equivalent of a CPAP.

Yes, that machine can be set to mode: CPAP in the clinical menu.
Then you set the pressure to 12.

It has 3 modes: CPAP, VPAP S, and (VPAP) Auto.

No reason for that; it has a CPAP mode.

RE: Just another test
Did they try you on an ASV? you had a *lot* of Central Apnea, both on initial study and on your current machine - right?

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
