Pressure need changing?
#1
I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea 14 years ago and began on CPAP at a pressure of 11. Six years ago I had another sleep study and pressure was increased to 12. I sleep very well, but about a year ago I began to feel lousy when I woke up. My blood pressure is high on rising but falls after meds. I feel much better when I go to bed than when I wake up. A bit depressed and sleepy all day. I have several health issues, but they are all under control with meds. Could it be that the CPAP pressure needs to be increased? Thank you.

Some medications can affect your sleep apnea and CPAP therapy. Depending on what Resmed machine you have, it may provide data which would offer a clue to your feelings or problems. Using CPAP is a good start, however, that does not mean it is working as intended. Your profile indicates you're not using software. Can you be specific what machine your are using. Resmed has a number of models and generations. Do you have the S8, S9 or Airsense 10, and which model, Escape, Elite, Autoset or CPAP?
