EPR settings - David T Hopkins - 10-12-2017

I recently purchased a ResMed S9 Escape CPAP machine and not from the doctor. Since I know my pressure setting I adjusted the machine myself. 13/3. My question is, is the /3 the EPR setting? EPR offered settings 1,2,3 and patient? EPR 3 feels the most comfortable but what is (patient)?

Patient means that you, the patient, are able to select the EPR level you want. Otherwise, the level would be locked and only changeable from the clinician's settings menu.

Not sure on the /3 setting but your explanation seems logical being that it is a CPAP machine with fixed pressure. Your pressure support will be 3cm H2O below what your setting is, in this case 13, and will not go below the minimum of 4cm.

Hi David T Hopkins,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Good luck as you continue CPAP therapy, hang in there for more responses to your post.

Understood. Duplicating the effects from my at home study is a must. This therapy has changed my lifestyle drastically.

He has an Escape. It has no data.
