yeah, to expand on what miss e said; can you see where the pressure bumps the maximum setting of 16? and look on the the events graph. it's right where the obstructives occur.

you machine is fighting with it's hands tied. when you bump the max up, it'll be free to fight!

Re: Evaluation of My OSCAR Data

Things are looking pretty good! I'd suggest raising your minimum a tad, as jimbud suggested, to see whether that helps with OAs, so try raising it by .2 cm increments, sticking with each new setting for at least 3-4 nights to see whether you can spot any trends. I'd recommend doing that first; once...

Re: Evaluation of My OSCAR Data

I've been away, and it's nice to come back and see you doing better. Jimbud has given you some good advice. Stick with your current settings a little longer. If you continue to see more than a couple of OAs, you can try inching up your minimum. CAs can be very inconsistent from one night to the nex...

Re: Evaluation of My OSCAR Data

I finally got closer to having the Dreamports on correctly. The Lava soap idea helped. Well, if no one will. I will say a little something. Now that you have things (mostly) under control. Give it a few days or a week to let things settle in. Hopefully the Centrals will get fewer and you can start ...

Re: Evaluation of My OSCAR Data

I hate when that happens! Good luck tonight. Please bear with me for another day. I don't know why the Dreamports are not staying on correctly. I finally got closer to having the Dreamports on correctly. The Lava soap idea helped. I still had a small leak when I woke up in the middle of the night, ...

Be more aggressive with the skin prep on your nose so that the adhesive will stick better.
I used the Lava soap last night. It worked well. Thank you. Pugsy. I did end up with a small leak, but it was probably due to not-so-perfect placement. Below is my OSCAR data:

Re: Evaluation of My OSCAR Data

Be more aggressive with the skin prep on your nose so that the adhesive will stick better. I will try, but I've been pretty aggressive - was face with Neutrogena soap and water, towel dry, wipe all aspects of the outside of the nose with the bleep preps. I keep positioning the adhesive part differe...

Could you post last night's chart, first doing two things: * Turn off the calendar by clicking the triangle next to today's date. * Squeeze in the following graphs: Events Flow rate Pressure Leaks Flow limitations Snores.

I’ll be curious to see the results from those changes.
I'll post in another couple of days. Last night got messed up because I did not set up my Bleep Dreamport correctly.
