Strange feelings
#1
I am new to this. I am having a feeling that I am not exhaling all the way. Also the feeling I am not getting enough air even though the machine is  at max20?

What is the exhale relief set to? That is called the EPR on the ResMed machines.

your lung sacs don't fully collapsed on cpap, I got use to that in a week. A low ramp or minimum pressure will make you feel like you aren't getting enough air. 6-7cm should fix this.

You are really going to need the detailed data provided from Sleepyhead. Without that it is nearly impossible to tell what is going on. Which of the AirSense machines do you have, it is identified down on the lower right side of you machine. Did you have a sleep study and a titration study by any chance, or are you flying alone.

Please fill out your profile with exact machine name. If you are using an Apap, what is your pressure range? From your post, sounds like 6-20? Do you know your median and 90% pressure?

Download SleepyHead software, then use the tutorials in my signature line to organize your graphs and upload here.

Once you do that, we can take a look at your data and see what is going on.

so you are getting the same machine on thursday. the airsense 10 auto? If not I'd be making sure it's the one you do get. I wouldn't accept any constant pressure cpap. Do you have copd or any lung condition for the lack of breath? you may need a bilevel machine. sleepyhead will shown your lung volume and flow.

arent there settings to adjust how long the inhale exhale lasts and how frequently they occur
these might be in addition to any auto adjusting that happens
also there may be waveform or rampup speed settings that could help
