advice please for Philips Respironics DreamStation
#1
Dear Dude

I got and using Philips Respironics DreamStation without humidifier and using it foe past four days with Philips Respironics DreamWear mask.

Yesterday night I felt the pressure is up and down. But when I cek the tube without mask the pressure in constant. When I fix it with mask again i felt the same.

The pressure was set to 4 and a lock symbol shown in the screen and doesn't allow me to change the ramp settings.

Could you help me to solve these issues!

thanks and regards

Subbu

Welcome to the forum gobisubbu!

So has your sleep doctor put you on fixed pressure, or on auto adjusting pressure?

Cflex or cflex plus is probably enabled.
You wont get pressure fluctuations just blowing air thru the tube as the blower is running wide open trying to reach its set pressure.
