Pressure comes out too fast.
Hi all,

I had a resmed a9 for 6 months on trial. I loved it. So I bought one. For some reason, when I inhale the pressure is so strong that I have to take it off. I'm currently awake at 1 in the morning because I couldn't sleep. I've been adjusting the settings but I can't figure out how to get it to be more in line with my breathing. It feels like as the machine realizes I'm about to inhale it ramps up and blasts me with air. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi wideiris,
Welcome to the forum! There are lots of folks here that will be happy to offer help and advice.

It would help us help you if you would fill out your profile more, with the exact model of your ResMed S9 (look on top by the Power button), mask details, prescribed pressure(s), etc.

Just a guess here, but it sounds as if you aren't using the Ramp feature, and it might help you, especially if you are new to CPAP therapy.

Good Luck in your PAP journey.

RE: Pressure comes out too fast.

Is the machine set exactly the same as the trial machine? pressure, EPR, etc ...
We know from your other thread, the machine is "not the escape", so can assume its not Escape Auto either, that leave AutoSet and Elite, both are data capable machines

My problem was with EPR, I find the 'decreasing and increasing' pressure is annoying and interfering with my breathing rhythm so I turn it off and the problem resolved but for some, its a godsend

It might be not what,re talking about, What setting have you djusted ?
Most people talk about having problems while exhaling, turn on EPR or set at higher level seem to helps as pressure drop during exhale by whatever level been selected (by 1, 2, or 3)

RE: Pressure comes out too fast.
Firstly, thanks to everyone for responding. I really appreciate it.

I think it's a combination of the ramping and the EPR. I turned the ramp back on, turned the EPR up and managed to go back to sleep. success (for now!)
