RE: Pulmonary Embolism?
usually you can get a greater effect on your runaway pressure by raising the min pressure some. If I had a similar problem I would change my pressure to 7 or 8 to my current max.

RE: Pulmonary Embolism?
The doctor's office called me today (Wednesday July1, 2015). They don't want to lower the pressure less than 15. They said to return to the sleep study center and work out the leaking mask issue. I couldn't make an appointment until Monday.

Last night wasn't too bad. I only woke up three times. Each time, I turned over and checked the display on the A10. In each case, the indicated pressure was over 14.

How long does the sleep study center monitor my detailed data?

I wonder, what software system are they using to collect the minute by minute data from my A10 over the cell phone network. Am I right to assume that it is provided by Resmed?

Thanks, Jeff
