So it is - my apologies, I was looking at somebody else's chart. I agree a bilevel might be the way to go, depending on the frequency and severity of the asthma attacks.

RE: OSA and Asthma
Is there a reason why the pressure max is 9 your machine is trying to go higher but is unable to.

RE: OSA and Asthma
Yes. During the sleep study, going higher than 9 made the AHI worse.

Personally, a higher EPR aggrevates my asthma. My lungs prefer to have 0 EPR.
