My supplier didn't seem to register any alarm about it when I told them, including any alarm about the fact that there didn't seem to be any explanation for the setting change.
They asked if my pulmonologist had changed it, and I explained that when I'd last seen the pulmonologist, I didn't have the machine with me. In fact I'd mailed the chip to the supplier to download, and the supplier emailed the report to the doc. This was a month or so ago. When I got my chip back in the mail I re-inserted it, and had no reason to think there would be anything different in the settings in my machine. Now I'm beginning to think they mailed me back the wrong chip. I just got a new one today, and the machine is back at 7, so I'm hoping my sore throat, and the dryness will go away.
I've been using a CPAP since August of 1995, and this is the first time I've had this kind of experience, and it's been really unpleasant. I wonder if anyone else has had a similar occurrence, and wonder, too, if I've done any damage to my throat and my sinuses?
