Therapy Questions

Therapy Questions
New machine, new mask and new street light.
the Gap in recording is from where I woke & thought it was morning due the new street light illuminating my room just like predawn. Took the mask off and drifted back to sleep. Woke about 330, checked the clock & realised that I was still 3 hours away from normal rise time.

It's only a short period during one night, however I feel much better & without feeling like an afternoon nap. A couple of weeks to fix the light and adjust to the mask & workout what is best. Things should be great.

Bazxa,  you should start your own therapy thread. These results are okay, but you are using default 4-20 pressure which is leaving you with a lot of pressure variation, and missing opportunities to treat the flow limitations that are causing the pressure to change.  You clearly need a narrower range starting with 8.0 cm minimum pressure and using some EPR.  We would like to help, but this is not the thread for that.
