RE: Thanks
With EPR at 3, your increased pressure can be expressed as 12/9 (IPAP/EPAP). Your revised pressure is close to my minimum at 13/ 9, so I definitely know that there is a comfort threshold, and for many of us, it is higher.

RE: Thanks
I thought it was to good to be true.
I think my tongue blocks my airway and then the machine trys to pump air through my blocked nose 
Then the nasal flow limitations cause the pressure to increase

Sorry i have made a mistake as 3 years ago I was using a S9 when I tried EPR 3. Does EPR 3 work better on the S10. I didnt like it on the S9 so never used it on the S10

RE: Thanks
No, both the S9 and A10 use the same EPR configuration. When you used the EPR, did you add the same amount of pressure (the EPR's value) back to your pressure settings?

RE: Thanks
Resmed's base their pressure increase on the flow limitation value. If you had a high flow limit, it will crank up the pressure, trying to overcome the restriction. If the flow limit isn't resolved, it can and will increase the pressure to just below your highest setting. That is one reason you don't leave the machine set to its maximum allowable setting.

RE: Made (Therapy Thread)
The positive airway pressure from your Cpap should keep your airway open if the pressures you are using are optimized for you.

I notice you've never posted a Screenshot of your chart.  We can offer better help once we see some data.

Download OSCAR if you haven't already done so.  Be sure there is a SD card in your Cpap while sleeping.  

Use the F12 key (on a Mac, Fn+F12) (standard view) to take a Screenshot.

RE: Made (Therapy Thread)
So you are saying that pressure will clear my nasal polyps and correct my deviated septum !!!

It wont so that is why I have to keep my oral airways open

Other that using a Oracle is there any other option available

Ps Flow limitations spend most of the time arround 0.5 with the corresponding increase in pressure up to maximum
