Poor results with CPAP - thoughts?

Thanks, Marillion. I have reset machine to 11 and dropped EPR to 1. It was a bit hard to fall asleep, my nose felt so full and puffed out, but I got used to it eventually. By sometime in the night I didn't really notice it. So I will keep it there for a bit, at least until I get my neck thing which is supposed to arrive Monday. I did notice that the CAs were way down last night, but there have been a couple of nights like that here and there for no discernible reason, so not getting too excited about that. Will see what happens over the next few days.

Will be back to fill you in in a few!

Excellent. As they say around here, "one night does not a trend make!"

As you get used to not using the EPR it will become more and more the norm. Keep us posted and all the best.
