Question about Cheyne-Stoke breathing
#41
RE: Question about Cheyne-Stoke breathing
OK, i change my pressure to 10-14, cause the last nights with a collar didn't change AHI etc. (AHI still around 7).


Is it a good idea to set the EPR to 0 because I'm a bit prone to periodic breathing?

I think it takes some time to get the leaks in the new pressure area under control.

My question to you: Should I open a new thread (with the new settings), or continue to post here?

Thanks

Continuing your thread here lets us review the history and better understand the effect of any changes. You can reduce EPR to see what difference it makes. Your choice to take it to zero or taper off more gradually.

I'm keen to see how you go - struggling with the same. And I'm on EPR2 and thinking about going down one level.
