Problems with breathe

Problems with breathe
Hello,
for several years, and it is getting worse, I have difficulty breathing (rhythm and amplitude), as if I had run a mile and I need ten to fifteen minutes to find a normal rhythm:
  - when I go to bed at night
  - when I wake up at night to change position (go from left flank to right flank)
  - sometimes at night without changing position.
The first and second images show the phenomenon; the third is a normal period.

Do any of you have an idea or better a solution.

Thank you

Resmed 10
pressure 7.4
IAH <1 9 days out of 10

RE: Problems with breathe
Please include a screenshot that shows the information in the left column with events, statistics and settings. This organization of charts is discussed in this wiki: http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...ganization You appear to have some issues with hyperventilation, and we may need to see some closer zoomed screenshots of that flow rate in the 2-3 minute time so we can sort out what is happening. The linked wiki also discusses how to take a zoom shot.

RE: Problems with breathe
As described in the Chart organization wiki, turn-off the monthly calendar by clicking on the triangle in the date, and turn-off the pie chart using F3 or the menu. There are some strange anomalies in your exhale cycle that could either be an expiratory snore or may even be a problem with the way your machine is using EPR. The first thing I want to do is to try slightly higher pressure in case that bump in the exhale is air-way collapse as the pressure falls too low.

You have an Airsense 10 Elite fixed pressure CPAP with a pressure of 7.4 and EPR of 3. I'd like you to try a minimum pressure of 9.0 to see if that clears up that exhale cycle and avoids the hyperventilation. With EPR 3, that will result in a pressure of 9.0/6.0 (inhale/exhale).
