Need help on cpap settings

RE: Need help on cpap settings
        Want to give thanks to the helpful people here. Gave up on Nasal and went to FFM, which looks like improved both my sleep and AHI. The new mask and SSC seems to work for me. Still working on BPAP for flow limits.

RE: Need help on cpap settings
        My numbers are good, except flow limitations staying 0.18 to 0.2 at 95%. I am sleeping better, longer periods at time, but still wake up  multiple times a night and don't feel real rested.Is there still room for improvement if I used an Aircurve VAuto? I don't mind the money if it improves my sleep further. Is it possible to go the other way and do worse on a Bpap? Thanks for your opinions.

RE: Need help on cpap settings
You can set up the VAUTO to be exactly the same settings you have now so if bipap does not work you would be where you are now. IF you plan to buy I would suggest Supplier #2 from the supplier list at the top of the site. I bought a used one for 799. Only one month of use great machine and a great company. Quite a few have purchased their machine there.

Based on your flow limits remaining relatively high while on an EPR of 3, your next step will involve a Bi-Level machine.
