RE: My cpap journey
I had misunderstood. This is still predominately obstructive and would call for increased pressure. Do you know what the median and 95% pressure was?

RE: My cpap journey
That is a message that you need to allow your machine to go higher. I would recommend 16, but 14 max pressure is better than nothing. Basically if you were on fixed CPAP, the doctor would set the machine to the 90% pressure. It would still help to see a chart so we can tell if you're dealing with a positional issue or not.

RE: My cpap journey
it's probably positional apnea, like chin tucking, jaw drop etc blocking your airway. I wouldn't do anything till you sort that out. I could suggest min 12 max 20, but I don't think this is in your best interest.The odds are you will show a chart bouncing around 20

For auto-cpap from machine data, or software. Set the min pressure at 'med' median pressure or 90% OR 2cm below 95% pressure. max pressure at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

I dropped this link in my first post to this thread, and if you read it, you will notice your results look a lot like the example http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...onal_Apnea

A large part of your problem is positional and you need to fix that. I also suggested a maximum pressure of 14, with the possible need to go to 16, and I will stand by that as well.

Saw my sleep doc today. She bumped me up to 12-15 with a ramp start of 8. I have switched from two pillows o one, did that Tuesday Iirc but it didn't make any difference.
