RE: awful results
No on has commented on the large leaks.  They are quite substantial, and must be addressed.

RE: awful results
OK let's get you comfortable.

Min Pressure 8  
Max Pressure 10 This is the same as 11 with EPR 1
EPR 0 or OFF

On the large leak that was on the end of a rough night for you. Don't worry about it.

Thank you.  You are something near my best friend  Smile

The leak was my mouth open I'm sure. I awoke with my mouth like sand paper. And when I want to stop sometimes I take off my mask and let the auto close the thing. So that gives a leak.

Thanks

Good Morning,

I had what is I think, a fantastic night.  First I awoke with no discomfort and my charts are not so bad, I think.  Maybe MAX to 11 ?  But 10 is really comfortable   Smile . Though I had a RERA which I have only when below 11. 

Thank you
Sabee

If you are comfortable then leave the settings where they are at.  You want to see a week at these setting at a min.  The target is more how you feel than the numbers

Hello,
Since last time I had a bit too many nights without the mask.  Or so little time :-(.
But now I managed to keep it for a couple hours long and here I am with my charts.  Really, without my hated rhinitis I would be so happy.  Most of the time I have to shut the machine is because of that.

Thank you again , you guys are just wonderful for us :-)

NB The RERAS I had the first time with pressure at 10 seem to have "gone".

Sabee

RE: awful results
Try dropping your max pressure to 9 with EPR off. Your flow limitations will drive your pressure to max as is currently happening. I want to see what happens to your obstructive apneas.
