[split] Help with Machine Settings
I think CPAP has really helped with my sleep and breathing. I have been using it for three years. My pressure started low (7) and is now 12. I need help changing the number on my machine (F&P Auto in Grey) I followed forum advise to get to menu, but still can't change it. My doctor is unable to download my info on this machine. i am using UCLA Sleep Center. Is there somewhere in the Orange County area to get my machine adjusted or fixed?

I'd appreciate any ideas.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum vegan747!

Have you been to this thread? http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual

Did you get or order the Clinician's Manual for your particular machine? It should have instructions on how to adjust your settings.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!
