Remember these settings because they look like a very safe place to go back to.
Any changes you make need to be small and given about a week to evaluate.  That said I would slowly raise the minimum (.4-.6, you can't do .5)  This is to see if we can further reduce the obstructive events you are having.  A VERY important question to ask is "How do you feel?"


Whats .4-.6? I cant do .5?

I have auto set to 6-11.

I have start pressure 5 with epr 1 on ramp only.

I woke up ok, but got tired around 2pm and went back to bed with machine. I slept till 5:30 or so. First time I did that..

But I took a different stomach medication. Not sure if that had a cause. I dont think so. Im tired now too... ugggg.

Ill post my nap results...

Raise the minimum from 6 to 6.4 cmH2O.  (your machine restricts you to .2 cmH2O increments)
