Thanks so much! The A-hole at Devilbiss wouldn't tell me how to do it. She said she would 'get in trouble"!

I have no doubt that she would get disciplined--or worse.
Manufacturers are in cahoots with the DME's and doctors to protect the power they enjoy (and misuse)

CPAP/APAP/VPAP pressures are prescribed by physicians. These pressures are what are required for effective therapy. If the pressures are changed, the therapy will be ineffective and you might as well not use the PAP equipment. Also, if you are a truck or bus driver and you change pressures you will be fined by the DMV and probably lose your liscense. If a homecare company or others change pressures they will be prosecuted and/or sued.

Those of us who were initially titrated at pressures several cm higher than effective and tolerable--
are looking for our high boots. :mrgreen:

Not true..............you lying piece of equestrian excrement!!!
Physicians often prescribe ineffective/inaccurate pressures based on one night in a sleep study. I know, it happened to me. These pages also have many, many examples of DME employees incorrectly configuring machines, too. An Auto-CPAP with a wide pressure range (often prescribed by physicians) can also be very ineffective and give horrible therapy. With proper guidance and the use of software with a data-capable PAP machine, the users can easily optimize their own therapy. After all, the patients OWN THEIR machines. It's absolutely NOT improper or illegal for them to change the pressures in THEIR machines. Yes, DMEs and RTs need an "order" from a physician to change the pressures......that's a well-known fact. But, it doesn't apply to the owners/users of the machines.

You have absolutely NO idea what you're talking about.
And, these forum pages are full of idiots like you coming here to demonstrate their stupidity.

I had a sleep test. Found out the correct pressure to use and set it in a minute.
