Set S9 on Cpap Mode with pressure setting of 11. avg pressure =>14
Set S9 on Auto Mode with Pressure 8 / 12 avg pressure=>14
Set S9 on Auto Mode With Pressure 15/18 avg pressure= <15
I have been using CPAP for 12 years and just received the S9 5 months ago. It is nice to finally see the numbers.
My problem is if a min, or max, setting is dialed in should not the avg. pressure be within those min. or max. setting????
I am trying to dial in a good pressure setting because leak rates are high 28, AHI are in the 16's,etc., Centrals are all above 8's.
Seems like I can not change pressure as all avg pressures are in the 13's or 14's.
You name it I have tried it, for example I am taping my mouth now for 1 week to try and reduce leaks. No changes. I have tried all sequence of pressure settings in both auto and cpap mode, changed masks, set EPR, Humidity, hoses, two types, unplugged and plugged machine back in, removed card for 1 week, put back in etc.etc.etc..
Am I correct to think that the avg pressure reading should be less than the highest setting, and more than the minimum setting, and that when set on cpap mode the avg pressure should be about the same as the cpap setting?????? Help. THE DME or The Docter aren't.
