RE: pressure of my new apap
what Paula said.
Bi level pressure support (the difference between epap and ipap) is quite different than cpap/apap EPR
maximum EPR allows is 3 while pressure support can be higher

It's good to have it available. Most people find they need one or that they feel much better. Some people find it helps prevent your nose from clogging or makes it worse.

It's one of several things in CPAP you have to tinker with to find the right choices.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Thank you both, I look forward to using the software to see where I am at. I hope they will not give me a problem setting up the pressures?
