PS settings

Diagnosis not finalized. It's complicated but will know soon. Posted settings not what I'm currently using but the ones I am using produce AHI around 4.

I agree that what we've heard about it so far doesn't make much sense, but it could be that his doctors are having him do something for reasons that do make sense. It's just that we're unaware.

I was only asking about how PS effects the operation of my ASV. I am being diagnosed by a highly qualified MD who is board certified in respiratory disease. I have a DDS degree and so I have some knowledge of the physiology involved. If all professional efforts fail I will be happy to request some amateur help.

Some how I find that hard to believe.

You are an editor and basically calling me a lier? None of the settings listed on any of these posts is current or was recommended by my current MD. I was previously using the machine and RX given to me by a sleep lab which I have since found out was unethical. They over titrated me in order to create central apneas which I do not have.  I have not asked about or am I unhappy with my treatment by some replies have said I did not provided enough data for them to provide a treatment plan.

I don't think we're trying to second guess your physician or yourself, but the question was unclear. As you know ASV is all about the pressure support being applied as needed (pressure) and when needed (rate) to overcome central apnea (high PS to cause a breath in an open airway), hypopnea (measured PS to increase volume), and periodic breathing (variable PS to even respiratory volume).  Our understanding is not at the level of your physician, but give us a chance, and we might have an answer.  There are many articles we could reference on the theory and function of ASV.

Admin note:

Lesson to all who replied to RLSdss in this thread-- he said he got what he came for ("My objectives have been met").  This should have ended the conversation, as it was apparent that he desired no further help.  No need to further attack the OP by questioning his truthfulness.

THREAD IS CLOSED.
