Turns out my machine settings are 16/12. Had a sleep study it showed that at 20/16 it wasn't able to control my apneas, but I did feel somewhat better that night. Had another sleep study on an asv machine and I'm waiting for the results of that..... which the doctor told me that I'll probably be using a new asv machine.
In the meantime while I wait I'm going to change the pressure settings on this old machine slowly up to 20/16 and see what happens.
My question is this, should I leave the card in the machine when I do this..... I'm concerned with the card in that it will just reset the settings. It's the old respironics bipap st with the big type of card, machine is over 5 years old, got it used.
Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!
STOP THE SNORE !!!!!
Leave the card in. If there are commands on there (no idea if PR machines do that), it is when you put it back in or the power is restored that it rewrites the settings.
