VAuto Trigger Setting
#1
VAuto Trigger Setting
I know the trigger setting is often recommended for users that see CA's and it resolves them. My question is, does the trigger setting have influence on other events? I have recently changed my trigger setting from 'High' back to 'Med' for the last 3 weeks. What I have noticed is an increase in events across the board, OA's & H's. I went from an AHI average around .3 to 1.3 with the trigger on 'Med' the past 3 weeks.

Any insight into this? With the trigger at a lower setting does it increase the likelihood of events at the end of exhalation and start of inhalation?

RE: VAuto Trigger Setting
If you were more comfortable at a high trigger setting, then by all means use it. I have not observed a correlation to obstructive events, but there are so many permutation of individual therapy, perhaps there is something to that. An AHI of 1.3 is still pretty darn good.

I know the AHI is still pretty decent, but was experimenting since I was having the heavy eyes issue and figured it was worth a shot. I am putting the trigger back to 'high' tonight and will see what happens. From looking at my data, the 'Med' trigger setting seems to allow events to creep into my flow.

How did it go by adjusting trigger back to high?
