one week update

1 week update:

90% pressure: 8.00
Max pressure: 14.18
Leak rate is at 4.76

I am looking for the 95% pressure and can't seem to find it.

I tried the small/med/lg nasal pillows, and med seems to fit my nose best. I am actually pretty happy with the mask. I am having a little trouble falling asleep, but I actually think that may be sleep sanitation.

I talked with the respiratory therapist by email, yesterday, and he said that things were fine from his standpoint, and no changes to the settings are needed.

The technical are looking good. How does the whole thing feel? Do you feel like you are getting enough air? You might want to consider taking that 5 up to 6 for a minimum if you are. As is, your system is pretty much wide open (4-20 is the wide open range).

Trouble falling asleep can be just getting used to it or sometimes one or more of the "comfort" settings could be better adjusted for you.

What is your total AHI number? Also what is breakdown of AHi, Obstructives, hypopneas, clear airways, etc.

Your minimum pressure could be raised to 6 just for comfort purposes so you don't feel starved for air, but the only reason for raising or changing pressure numbers should be if your AHI is too high.
