Can someone kindly tell me, or point me in the right direction as to what the EPR settings should be, and what is meant by "essentials" for the Airsense 10??
My current EPR (expiratory pressure relief) is ON and at 2, and essentials is ON but don't know what that means?? I think an EPR of 1 means a drop of 1, 2 means a drop of 2, and 3 a drop of 3 from the lower range value upon exhaling. why would anyone want to have a minium pressure relief upon exhaiing??
What happens if I totally turn the EPR OFF, what does that do? Also, the essentials are ON. What happens if I turn the essentials OFF??
some people, like me, have trouble exhaling into pressure. You have the EPR settings correct, with EPR just try different settings and see if you like one best
essentials is just setting how much you have access to, the plus give you the most access
Essentials Plus you can allow highly engaged patients to access additional
features for control over more of their therapy settings, including changing their mask type, EPR (if
available), SmartStart and Run Warmup
EPR drops from whatever the current pressure is. For example, if the machine is blowing pressure at 8.4 then EPR of 1 drops it to 7.4 on exhale, 6.4 if set to 2, and 5.4 if set to 3. Machine will not go below 4.
