You are missing the detailed data on the left. Please read the instructional links in my signature on how to take a screenshot in OSCAR and post it here.

RE: [split] Jklewis54's therapy
Some observations about possible edits to the therapy: I don't know if you have EPR active, but you might consider it. First off, you would need to change the pressure up from 4 where most feel air starved as is. If you'd like to try EPR, it has settings of 1, 2, 3 cmH2O and would likely be best to be set to Full-time. In doing so, comfort may increase.

If you choose EPR 3, giving the most Exhale Pressure Relief, you'd need to bump pressure from 4 to 7, as EPR subtracts its number from the pressure. Your PAP machine will not go below 4 cmH2O. And as is, your low side pressure hovers around 9 or so mostly.

RE: [split] Jklewis54's therapy
Please set minimum pressure to 8.0 and EPR to 2.0. Your results are actually quite good, but we can greatly reduce the pressure fluctuations and flow limitations with these settings.

RE: [split] Jklewis54's therapy
Fred, it is here http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...d_Side-Bar We ask users to close the right sidebar and calendar, so this is a matter of confusion. I think we may need to revise the wiki for the current version and emphasize the need to use F12 to take the screen shot. Also the to talk about the new Reset Graphs/Standard/Advanced, features in the View Menu. I just added the following text: '''Keep''' the Left Side-Bar which provides very helpful information on therapy results and machine settings.

RE: [split] Jklewis54's therapy
Actually felt better this morning, I decided not to wait a few days . . .
However, I forgot to insert the SD card back into the machine. I reinserted it and it seems to have only updated the daily report.
Some of the setup as listed on that report is wrong, so I erased and reformatted it and re-input the settings provided me and start fresh. Changed mask for better fit as well and leaks were way down.
