The Journey Begins - clearairways Therapy Thread
#71
RE: The Journey Begins - clearairways Therapy Thread
Thanks so much to both of you - I'm only 1 month in but I have high hopes at this point. 

I'm making daily notes now and have been for the past few weeks which has been helpful for sure.
Monitoring any changes I make like chin straps / pillow size adjustments etc

I'm a total data nerd - I can get quite obsessive with it for sure and am really enjoying it .  
I'll be mindful to monitor real world feelings as opposed to the data. 

I had a similar challenge with the smartwatch - it's great, but there were times when I found myself questioning whether I was feeling rough only because the watch was telling me I should feel rough that day !

Comfort is indeed my top priority at this point as I'm determined to make the pillows work rather than the full mask and get to consistent 8 hour sleeps.

Will bring the lower pressure up to 7.4 and monitor.

@SleepRider:
I'm currently at 7/12.8 PS 4

You mean Bring to 7.4 / 12.8 and change PS to 3.6 ?

Or only change EPAP to 7.4 and leave all else the same ?

I am suggesting only a change to the EPAP min and max pressure. Increase both by the same amount. Leave PS alone for now.
