Hi everyone! I'm using a ResMed 10 Autoset with the N30i nasal mask and I am thrilled with the results! Is there anything obvious that I need to change or should I continue to be happy with these kind of results?

Your leak rate is not high enough to be a problem with your therapy, but it might be disturbing your sleep. Have you tried a chin strap, soft cervical collar, or a full face mask?

I would like to see your flow limits chart. Pressure goes up when there are flow limits. Your pressures go up but no O or H events show up most of the time. So I suspect you have flow limits we may be able to reduce

RE: Your thoughts?
For seasonal allergies, I have found keeping some Flonase (generic fluticasone propionate) works well without adverse effects or rebound. I'm reluctant to mess with near perfection, but do give EPR 2 and 3 a try to see if it feels a bit better. Go for the one that feels best, however it will reduce your flow limitations, currently at a 95% of 0.11. If you can get that to .06 or less I think you will notice a positive difference. We have some wikis on flow limitation that explain how EPR works to reduce those. Great to see your easy and effective transition to CPAP.

RE: Your thoughts?
On all three nights you do have a lot of flow limits.  Some people it really does bother some not so much.  I would try EPR 2 and see if it is better for you.  If you do NOT get many more central after a couple days - try EPR 3.

Again these are apnea they just are smaller and are not timed - you can see how each type of apnea is categorized in my signature at the bottom of the page.

RE: Your thoughts?
Yep, it doesn't hurt to try making it better. Give increased EPR a go and see how flow limits respond. Tell us if it changed how you feel, positive or negative.
