Re: What is your biggest CPAP struggle?

-what do you struggle with the most with your CPAP? i concur that masks are very hard to figure out because of the differences in facial structure. you might also be aware that there is more to masks than just a full face mask. for me, a nasal pillow mask (resmed P10) is the way to go. - what do yo...

Re: pressure difference with new mask?

These are good results for a newbie (and many oldies :D ). I wouldn't change any settings at this point. OSCAR may tell us more. What graphs should I have up on OSCAR for posting on this forum? I see there are many that I can scroll through on OSCAR. forum friend grumpy here has this to say- https:...

Re: Non-mouth breather suddenly has dry mouth with new APAP

I used my CPAP at 7.2 pressure the range is set between 4 and 20 on the new APAP This is a significant change in pressure settings. I suspect at the newer settings you are struggling to breathe and opening your mouth. If you were doing well at 7.2, I would set the new machine to 7.2 straight CPAP. ...

Re: YEA My First Oscar submission

You can. Whether it's bilevel or not, the min (or on bilevel, EPAP) pressure is what holds the airway open so that you can take another breath. If the lowest pressure in a breath cycle is too low, your airway will close, and you won't be able to take another breath until you wake up enough to open ...
