New Cpap User still snoring - can you help me?
New Cpap User still snoring - can you help me?
I decided to buy a cpap out of pocket before our baby was born.  I did this without the help of a doctor as it was going to cost me a fortune to get the sleep study.  The results so far have been great - I am definitely sleeping better and feel great throughout the day.  

I am using a resmed airfit p10 mask and find it very comfortable but the headstrap is definitely loosening up over time.  

My wife has complained this week that I have been snoring...so while I feel great, maybe there is something I need adjusted in my settings?

RE: New Cpap User still snoring - can you help me?
I am sure that your treatment is helping you but you still have too much obstruction occurring (OA, H, FL, snore).
You need more pressure to decrease those events.  I would increase the minimum pressure from 6 to 7.  See how it goes for a few days.  You may need to increase the min to 8.
As an alternative, you could decrease FLEX. It looks like you have it set to 2. You could change the FLEX setting from 2 to 1.  This will cause the EVAP to be higher which would also help. 
I would first increase min from 6 to 7.  If that is not good enough, then I would change FLEX from 2 to 1.  If still not good enough, increase min from 7 to 8.

I agree with Ted about increasing the minimum pressure. The Philips machines really do a lot better when the minimum pressure is optimized. With regard to snoring, VS is a vibratory snore, but VS2 is not something to be concerned about. I usually suggest that tracking for VS2 be disabled in preferences.
