I am a new cpap user and so far i am doing pretty well i believe . I use a nasal mask i had a few episodes of mouth breathing at first but those seem to have stopped , i am self adjusting some of my pressure settings i started on 5-20 cm but felt slightly suffocated @5cm so i changed to 6 which is great, the higher pressure of 20 [/php][/code] made my mask freeflow. so that is currently 15 . I am a scuba diver so i hope that term makes sense) .I am using a resmed auto system one machine.I think my current settings are doing really well i do wake up a couple of times per night to turn off the machine(without remembering)and ripping off the mask but that is improving from what ive read this happens to people new to cpap.I have added my sleepy head screen shots and welcome any comments or suggestions i am a nurse by profession but have alot to learn i am finding out. So please give me your opinions regarding my numbers.I would appreciate it and if i can be of help let me know.
Thanks Kevin Gardner
