[CPAP] feeling of pressure loss
#1
feeling of pressure loss
Hello  I am new to sleep apnea .I have a ResMed 10 auto . I have been having a problem with loss of air pressure . Sent it back had it checked they there is nothing wrong with it and eliminated the ramp up and it seemed better when I got it back . About 3 days later I had the same problem again and at that time it was the mask it was not exhausting the air ,not sure why .I think the mask is an F 20 ,would have to check to be sure . I got the mask I did my test with ,it works better [more exhaust holes ] ,but after about 5 hrs of use i lost pressure again , this has been going on for a week now .Oh and it show a leaky mask when this happens ,but there is low pressure . If I put mask back on in 10-15 mins later it may go 1/2 hrs and do it again low pressure .  Any ideas ?????????

RE: feeling of pressure loss
I'm not sure what your are saying exactly.  If you have a leak then there would be less pressure, if it is a large leak you would have even less pressure.  I suggest you put up OSCAR charts.  You can download it free and put it in your next post, that is about the only way we can see what is happening.

Check my signature to see how to organize the charts.  Use the F12 button to do a screenshot and post using the button at the bottom of your post.

What are the settings on you machine for pressure?  Maybe it is set to the default of 4 and 20?

A low minimum pressure can give you the felling on no pressure or breathlessness.
Thank you,

Could it be your sinuses are getting clogged up and your not diagnosing the problem correctly?
