But I have terrible insurance now and really can't afford to go back and have another sleep study done. My dad also has sleep apnea. He upgraded to a new CPAP and knew I needed one so he just gave me his old Resmed Escape S8. I tried it with the settings he has. He says he has it at the lowest settings but when I use it, I can't breath out with it on. I remember when I had the sleep study that when I had it on, it could breath in fine but if I opened my mouth, I would gag (forcing me to keep my mouth shut all night.)
Well, I looked up on the web trying to figure out how to adjust the settings. It appears I need to adjust the EPR settings so I can make it easier for the machine to detect I'm breathing out so it's not pushing in as I'm breathing out and basically suffocating me. But I can't figure out how to get in the settings. I've found many posts saying to hold the right and down or the left and down for about 3 seconds and it should get me into the settings. I've tried it many times. I can't get anything to show up other than the word CPAP and a couple bars no matter what buttons I push. Any ideas? Going to a doc and asking him to do it isn't an option. I can't afford it with no insurance.
