Need advice on how to improve results

RE: Need advice on how to improve results
I think this is a new version of the old problem of positional apnea. My advice is going to be to try a different collar as the one you got is an improvement, but is allowing flow limitations and not maintaining your airway. To really evaluate this, try zooming in on the flow rate, and compare to the images in the flow limitation from positional apnea wiki. I would expect to see the inspiratory flow is very flattened during the RERA clusters. http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...Limitation

RE: Need advice on how to improve results
I have tried several collars and this is the one that seems to work best.  I have been studying flow rate as you suggested and I have included a pic showing flow rate.  I did raise the pressure to 13 as was also suggested. I can not figure out if there is a problem with air out or air in or both.
Any ideas on what I should try next?   Thanks
