Likely that will overwhelm him and the fact that the software is unofficial may give him the excuse he craves to dismiss it.

I think it should be your follow up plan. Start with a printed ResScan report highlighting the data that concerns you.

It will help, and it will make it easier and more natural to breathe.

Raising EPR also makes breathing feel more natural. That's the idea, even though there's some concern over it raising your CA index.
