[CPAP] My Therapy
#1
Question 
My Therapy
Good afternoon,

I am 1 month into my CPAP therapy. I finally got an SD card and downloaded OSCAR. I've imported last night's data. Now is the time where I have to figure out what this information even means. Help please!

Thanks,

RE: My Therapy
Your results look good. You're to a very food start.. The few CA events are probably treatment emergent and should decrease as you adapt to the therapy. Flow limitations are driving your pressure up. Set EPR to 2 full time to reduce them and post again.

RE: My Therapy
Thanks! What does flow limitations mean? I think I have EPR set to off because that was a suggestion from someone on reddit when I mentioned that transition from exhale to inhale caused annoying pulsating sensation.

Another question I have is, where in this data would I be able to see if my mouth opens during sleep?
