RE: New Here - Could use some help
Adding a bit in after Sleeprider's comment. Staying out of the way, that's why you don't take the chart literal and say my I:E is this. If you'd do that, the Ti Min & Max are in the way. You'd artificially close the spontaneous breath window.

Seems we cross posted.

Ok, thank you for the explanation !

Seems adjusting these won't help in my case then.

Gotcha, thanks!

There's an unwritten rule that Apnea treatment requires trial and error, so much so that it needs to include lots of error that makes it a trial. So more or less you're par for the course as it were. You're still fairly new to PAP and it takes a while to reprogram yourself for a new normal. No of course normal didn't include an alien mask blowing on your face and its hose tail. But that's what our Apnea normal becomes.

There's a few for you. Give it a little bit more time. PAP therapy will be a breeze.

Seems I get an acceptable seal on my medium Dreamware FF mask, going to try it tonight with the Resmed set to 8/10.6.

Fingers crossed, here's hoping the mask stay seals throughout the night.

This is the ResMed with Phillips FF mask, aborted last night.

I can't get this Resmed to work out well for me, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, going back to my dreamstation and Nasal mask for tonight for sure.

Let's increase the maximum pressure from 11.4 to 14.0. Your apnea are all obstructive and look like they are positional, but higher EPAP pressure is the answer to obstructive events like this.
