My sleep life has been miserable since. Back to the sleep doc twice and he raised ipap by 1 each trip. No real difference in sleep.Typical ahi 10 - 17. What to do I ask myself Sleep doc no help, dme staff doesn't really understand the product.
So I start by changing ipap 10, 12, 13, 14 and sleep a night on each setting. Some little help between 10 - 13. On this machine max ps is 7. It is hard to exhale with an epap of 6 or 7.While going through the setup I had noticed a max pressure=25 and left it alone. As I said these changes produced marginal sleep benefits.
Last night before bed I decided to clean up the max pressure=25. Changed to 15 and stated top down through setup menu. Lo and behold in the mode selection there was a "auto biflex" selection. Turned it on and and set epap[=5. Got a decent nights rest (for me) with an ahi for 8.09.
My sleep study specified a cpap pressure of 13 (circa 2000). yeah i know. Last night ipap and epap danced around all over the chart for the first time ever epap 90% 8.00 max 9.00
ipap 10.00 11.00
So where to from here, guess I need to figure out get a sleepyhead chart posted here.
