Survey on what pressure opens airway for you
#1
Would you be able to share what pressure or range of pressures that it takes to stint open your airways during CPAP therapy?
I am interested in how high that pressure seems to be overall, although I understand that there are many variables affecting the result.
Thanks and Happy 4th of July.

My 90% is 12.5 cmH2O. I still get snoring scored on the machine, so that is likely too low.

My 90% stays around 11 to 11.5cm.
I was titrated at 9cm when I had my sleep study, so you see that one night doesn't tell the whole story.

14.2 -15.0 depending on how much this sloppy bag of oxygenated hydrocarbon ate and how close to bed time he ate it.

My 90% pressure has remained around 10.5-11.0 for the last five years or so.

My 90% rate is 7.0-7.5, I believe I was titrated at about 6 during the sleep study 2-1/2 years ago. It's not ideal, but the events dropped from an AHI of 6 to typically 1.5 or better most nights.

Current settings are 12 - 15 with 95% at 14.8

How often are you hitting the 15 cm/H2O cap if your 95% pressure is 14.8? What happens if you bump that up a couple of nachos? Er, notches?

I was titrated at 20cm/H2O and that works well.
