RE: pressure plateau
FWIW we try not to act like that other site.

Here's to hoping your nasty charts clear up. That Respironics ScreamStation has the reputation of less than helpful features like Flex. The ScreamStation does make one want to scream at the guy that issued it it seems from feedback on its victimsusers.

RE: pressure plateau
There is definitely a different vibe here. I was a member there since 2008 and eventually drifted away from the conflicts, and arguments. There are some very good, knowledgeable people over there and if you can deal with the chaos I guess it's okay. We assume most people come here for help and havn't heard of the things we tell them, even if we have repeated it countless times. At the end of the day we find it a lot more rewarding to see positive results and than to try to criticize or shame someone for not knowing, or getting it wrong on the internet. We often disagree, but the difference is, we don't need a personal insult to defend our position. I mostly hang out here.

There's one guy in particular that is really stuck on himself.... expects you to read his mind otherwise he considers spoon feeding you.

One moderator who talks over your head and most of the time doesn't keep it simple. Blows things out of proportion.... 

ie; a heated hose.... me.."get one"..she says.."you don't need one, don't get one for now, you can insulate it.. "

me, "better to be prepared, even if you don't need it now.. be prepared" the guy said he would insulate it"..... 

instead of drop her argument she kept knockin me down....  Oh-jeez

RE: pressure plateau
The CA's only were 2.5 but when I expand the flow chart all the way it shows CA's in their entirety, and I see more than 2.5.

Am I missing something?

And no OA's, but Snores. I would think snores would be restrictive.

RE: pressure plateau
Snores are restrictive and are a primary driver of pressure on PR machines, similar to flow limits on ResMed.

Are you missing duration?

the events on the time line show the duration... less then 5 seconds..... is that what your asking?

And yes I see the pressure increase right around a snore.

I have to replace my chin strap.
