What causes pressure to increase
#1
[attachment=2480]

Here is an example of a HA not increasing the pressure and an example of a flow limit event causing an increase in pressure. Why?

What causes the flow limit events? I have many spikes and cannot figure what is causing them.
CPAP is a journey like “The Wizard of Oz”. It’s a long slow journey. You will face many problems and pick up many friends along the way. Just because you reach the poppies, it doesn’t mean you are in Kansas.

the short answer is "because it's programmed to behave that way".

Thanks palerider,
While the short answer, it's the best. I think everyone should view the YouTube video before asking too many questions

Thanks
