[CPAP] Newbie to CPAP Therapy
#21
RE: Newbie to CPAP Therapy
Your change to EPR 3 did NOTHING... Let me explain - the absolute lowest your machine can go is 4, your min is 5.   EPR subtracts like this Min - EPR = exhale pressure.  So yours 5-3 the machine can not go down to 2 so your exhale pressure pressure was 4.

I suggested min 8 and EPR 3 Which would  be min8-epr3 = exhale of 5.  It is important because the EPR is what we use to lessen the flow limits - you need to move the min up to 8.

Then we  can see if it is helping or not.  And the collar would be a help on the positional apnea.
