[Pressure] Want to improve AHI Numbers
#1
Want to improve AHI Numbers
I am using a DS bipap / STAVAPS machine. Settings are set to the following:  min  ipap 15.0
                max iPap 25.5
                       Epap11.0
                       VT 400
 My AHI scores are to high 18.7, lowest 11.8 . Mask fit 97% or better.
Have Dr. appointment late next week. Is there anything that could be 
changed to improve my scores ?

RE: Want to improve AHI Numbers
Art, can you download the OSCAR software?  

We can better offer help if we can see some data.  Be sure there is an SD card in your machine while you are sleeping.  

After a night or two, post a Screenshot of the Daily page in OSCAR and use the attachment feature to post a chart here.

Use the Organization link below in my signature line to guide you.
