RE: PS [Pressure Support]
What is the snooze button?  I couldn't have pushed it as I don't know what it is!

If you click on a person's name, it will take you to their page. On the bottom left, there are contact options - one of them will be to send that person a private message. There might be easier ways to do this, sorry I'm a bit muddled at the moment and can't think of what they would be.

RE: PS [Pressure Support]
Oh, okay, I get it with the Doc, Larry. You’re lucky you have one you like and who is good at coordinating care.

The Snooze button is a variation on the alarm on an alarm clock. An alarm goes off once. Too bad if you roll over and go back to sleep. A snooze alarm.....you set the time, but in the morning, instead of switching the alarm off, you hit Snooze. It turns off only temporarily. The alarm will go again in 5 minutes or so. You can do this repeatedly, thus my concept of causing a no-breathing event while you reach, smack the Snooze button, and roll back over to get more zzzz’s, reach and repeat.

An EZ PZ way to PM... see at the bottom of the left sidebar on every post? There’s a PM button? Voila! It’ll PM the person who wrote the post.

Larry, I suggested a fixed pressure range of 11/10 in post 74.  I don't think higher pressure helps you, and lower pressure allows more obstructive events. There is a contingent of individuals that do great with fixed pressure.  You might be one of them, but you won't know unless you try.

Ok.  Then you want me to set it at Mode: S, 11 cm IPAP 10 cm EPAP?  I'll be happy to do it if that is what you want.

I did it - Mode = S, IPAP = 11, EPAP = 10.  Everything else as it is - no changes.
