Sleep study and weight

Sleep study and weight
Hi  just noticed on my sleep study that the weight they recorded is incorrect by 20 kg  I am wondering now if this makes a difference in the pressure number that my doctor prescribed for my my cpap machine which was 5 to 7. I am fling for second study this time I believe they  will be testing me with a cpap machine

RE: Sleep study and weight
Nope. The pressure needed goes by what it takes to keep your airway open. The machine could care less how much you weigh.
