If I have any issues, I can set it back during the night. It wanted 4-20cm, I just switched it to 5-20cm and left ramp at 5 minutes.

The default ramp start pressure is 4. You can change the start ramp pressure but a 1cm ramp 4-5 is almost pointless. At pressure that low, you should go without ramp.

Also, seeing as your previous pressure was fixed at 14, you may find 5 won't give you enough.

Try it tonight to see what happens.

I agree that the ramp is not necessary if you start the pressure so low. When you set the low pressure to 5 that is where the machine will run until a respiration upset causes it to rise. It will be a long haul to get to 14 if that is truly what you need. There could be a lot of disturbances along the way. It might be better to start it at 9. Also you know 14 is good so I would put the upper limit at 14. Higher than 14 is just more prone to leaks.
Then when you look at the data you will be able to see if you can go lower than 9 or if the pressure wanted to sit at a level higher than 9.

if you can't decide then you don't have enough data.

RE: Large Leaks
I got it 7/17/2015 I have a serial # but I don't know where to find a production date. I unchecked the RERA option yesterday, but put it back today, we will see if it shows itself.

Ok, good call both of you. Thanks for the coaching. I'' start it at 9, and set max @ 14. That is a great assumption by both of you.
Report back tomorrow night after work. Thanks

RE: Large Leaks
In SH you might have to rebuild the data to show RERA. Under menu Data > Rebuild CPAP Data and select your machine serial number.

RE: Large Leaks
Tried it, nogo. I even purged all data, then reloaded from my card still no RERA. I can't find a production date for it yet, still trying to find it.

Thanks. The Restriction data didn't show up right away yesterday, it came up after I launched SH later in the day.

RE: Large Leaks
ADDENDUM:
Just a random thought, maybe it hasn't shown up because it is in CPAP mode? Tonight will be in Auot Set, tomorrow will tell.Thinking-about

RE: Large Leaks
AlanE AND MobileBasset,

Rather than bore you with previous screen shots that are already in this post, I will give you my 1st night, last night, and last nights statistics shots.

YOU BE THE JUDGE........

1st Night:

Last Night:

Stats from 1st day to last night:

[Image: 20847019392_4b32499662_c.jpg]Stats 8-24-2015 by Chuck Cangialosi, on Flickr

So, how do I thank you both (and all the others who chimed in to offer suggestions) for solving my LL problem? Words aren't enough. I was really struggling to solve this problem. I understand it was only 1 night, but each progressive night from here will be only better. Now I can make small incremental changes and see if it can get better.

Again, many thanks for helping me through this problem.

Regards,
Chuck

RE: Large Leaks
Anytime Chuck. That's why we get paid the big bucks!

oops was I not suppose to say that? Big Grinnie

One CA all night. Very nice. In Sleepyhead you can move the graphs to different places. Click and drag action. Looking at the Flow Limitation graph is helpful to see why the machine raises pressure. Great job on getting the leaks down. In fact, I'm a little jealous. Your leaks are lower than mine. :grin:



Disclaimer: No unfortunately, we don't get paid anything... sigh.

RE: Large Leaks
Looks good! Try it out for a while and see how it goes. It may settle a bit differently as you get used to it.

if you can't decide then you don't have enough data.

RE: Large Leaks
Still going very well, going to give it a few weeks to see what my "average" is. At this time, I have the machine report "daily", after this Saturday I'll change it to a week, then 30 days.

I'm going to stop reading my memory card everyday this Saturday also, and just do it once a week. At this point, I don't think I will make anymore adjustments for now. Maybe in a month or so, when I learn to read the graphs a little better, I can maybe see any patterns that trigger things and tweak from there.

Update in about a monthSleep-well

Thanks all again for getting me over this hump!!!SHa_biggrin5

RE: Large Leaks
Last thing for now, I still can't get the RERA info line to show up in the daily.

Found this info about my machine, am I missing something in the settings?

Software number: SX567-0302;S10_AUTOSET_RERA
