You're welcome sir.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

In the clinician's menu check under Therapy if your mode is set to anything other than Autoset.

Take your machine off of "auto" and the grey will be gone.

You had an idea you needed to increase your pressure, or at least thought it was a good idea. You had settings of 6 - 12 on Aug 4. Although nearly all of your events were CA, and are not treated with pressure, your machine did increase pressure during other parts of the night. It did so because it sensed obstruction, partial obstruction, or resistance to flow. So, raising minimum pressure may make sense.

If these were my readings, I would note that my pressure never was below 7 except at startup, and my pressure was above 8.6 at least half of the time. I would gradually change my minimum pressure until it was within 2 cmH2O of my 90% pressure (9.2). I would increase minimum pressure to 7 and then monitor for 4 to 5 days before stepping up again, by .5 cmH2O every 4 to 5 days until 9.2 is achieved.

I would be monitoring for reduction of machine reaction (pressure swings), and to ensure I was not picking up significantly more CA readings.

[I would also reduce the EPR setting from 3 to 2 as this sometimes reduces the number of CA events, although CA events generally go away or are reduced on their own.]

Turning off the ramp is easy.
Go into "clinical Menu" (hold the Home button and the selector knob in for 8 or 10 seconds)
Click on "Auto Ramp Time" ( You need to turn off "Auto" before it will allow you to adjust the time)
Now the time setting is no longer greyed out.
Turn the wheel to your desired setting. "OFF" is at the end of the circular graph.
Click wheel to save.
Your done, Sleep-well
