Messy Flow Rate chart questions
#11
RE: Messy Flow Rate chart questions
While the shape may not apply with ASV, the numbers might. But it is really based on how you feel.

There is no index to assess flow limitations. From what I understand, for a lot of people the goal is to be around .3 in the max column with 0.0 (or nearly 0 in 95%) in the others.

I was running around .5 and have brought that down to .3 +/- by increasing my EPAP.

I wish there was a flow limitations row on the OSCAR statistics report to show an average.
