Hi. I found this space while searching for a way to increase the pressure on my harmony bipap. I notice you have a number of machines that you have this information for, but the harmony is not there. I am posting in the hope that perhaps someone has this information.
I am quite desperate. They won't increase the pressure, even though I am tired all the time and waking up with headaches. I am so tired I just want to sit and sob and I am at the point now where I no longer care if they haul me over the coals for it - I want to take control and do it myself.
If there's a way, that is.
I did a quick Google search and couldn't come up with anything.
This is an old machine. Why do you have it? Is there any way to get a newer one? The user manual I found on the Respironics site is dated '03 which means it probably came out before that. There are much better machines available now.

Thanks for the reply. I don't have a choice, sadly. I am in the UK. the machine is owned by the NHS and I just have to take what they give me and see them annually for review. don't get me wrong, I am grateful, but I am just so tired and i wish they would agree to increase the pressure.
