Survey on what pressure opens airway for you
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.
Sleep-well

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.

RE: Survey on what pressure opens airway for you
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.

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.
