Pressure Setting
#21
RE: Pressure Setting
Received new full face dreamwear today. Here is my problem. It don’t exhale as quick as I do. I’m breathing out more than the machine is exhaling. What setting fixes that? Also I did order sleep collar. Thanks for advice on that.
Thanks Ray

Increasing the Cycle sensitivity will allow the IPAP to drop off sooner.

RE: Pressure Setting
So under “cycle” in settings it is set to medium. The options are very low, low, medium, high, and very high. So go to high?

RE: Pressure Setting
Yes, High. You can try it to see if that helps. I found that if I relax during my exhale that it matches the machine to the point that I don't know it's there. If I try and do a rapid exhale, I can feel the resistance.
