RE: New Guy! High AHI
I'm just as impressed as can be. By reducing EPR and making some changes in the VPAP timing and sensitivity, you have achieve very very good results. I think your doctor will be happy with this.  Pretty amazing a few days ago we were looking at this.  You look like a completely different person.

RE: New Guy! High AHI
Good morning, All.

My CA's have been trending upward in frequency. Here are the last three nights. 

Any ideas what I can tweak to help this?  I'm scheduled to see my sleep doc in early January.


Thanks!

Dave

RE: New Guy! High AHI
It depends on the cause of the centrals. Common cause is a reduction in CO2 levels in the blood. To increase those we can reduce EPR.
Set EPR =2, if that works the answer is yes, Reduce EPR
