It is important to note - the study uses a signal generator to mimic normal and then flow limited breathing. It clearly shows that the algorithm bumps up pressure periodically even when no flow limitations occur.
Agree, when looking at my graphs, they are always at 1.5 cm, and only seem to occur when nothing else is going on....like no flow limitations, no apneas.
