My girlfriend says I’m snoring while wearing my mask... should I turn up my settings it’s currently at 11, if so how much?

RE: Still snoring
If you can post a chart from sleepyhead it would help a lot in trying to determine what pressure you need. The links for downloading the software and directions on how to post are just below.

RE: Still snoring
Yes, I would raise my min pressure in response to snoring, normally 1cm at a time. As walla said, if you post some sleepyhead charts, you will get better advice.

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.

RE: Still snoring
You are using a fixed CPAP. The autoset would have increased pressure, and so should you. Your S9 Elite will work with SleepyHead, so get the software and try to optimize. At 15 cm pressure with 3 EPR I'm a bit surprised snoring is an issue, but it's nice to have a girlfriend to tell you about it. At least you have not driven her to another bedroom.

Try a nasal mask it will force you to breath out of your nose if you can get used to it, it worked for me!
