Total BIPAP noob consolidated thread
Total BIPAP noob consolidated thread
Hello everyone!  Total noob here trying to work with my BIPAP finally.

Total noob questions:
-my breathing cycle seems too fast.  I breathe in and I hear something close or shut like a PFshhh and then I feel it stops pressure and starts the exhale and then that valve releases.  I have T1 set at 3.0s and T1 min set at 1.4a.
-my primary problem is hypoventilation.  Weak breathing effort or something.  Could be asthma that I haven't had to treat in years?  But doctor has me set in VAuto mode which I understand is used for central apneas and hit hypoventilation.
-feel like my lungs aren't letting enough air in.

Are these settings provided by your doctor or have you altered them on your own? If so why?

Also please post your daily charts. Use F12 (Windows) or Fn+F12 (Mac)

That will help us with what is going on.

Hey Gideon, I'm just starting out on my therapy. These are the settings my doc gave me and that was the diagnosis I was given from my sleep study.

I've not been able to sleep yet on this thing.  I've only got awake sleep data if that would help?  Please let me know if that will work as a starting point.  Thanks!
