Re: Help with Pressure Settings for New APAP User

I'm not trying to offend you here. Well....you are doing a damn good job of being annoying and offending. You might want to quit while you are ahead. Get real...OP here has tried contacting a doctor and gets a clueless nurse instead. We have strongly urged increasing that maximum many, many times b...

Re: Help with Pressure Settings for New APAP User

If someone lowers their titrated pressure, they may not get the full benefit of the therapy. the word "if" here carries a lot of weight. the majority of us here feel that sleep doctors are NOT doing the proper job of titrating. if the majority WERE, there would be very little reason for this forum ...

Re: Help with Pressure Settings for New APAP User

. But I do believe a good sleep study with a titrated pressure is required to treat the sleep apnea effectively. So what do you suggest be done when someone doesn't get a titration sleep study at all....and they are given apap machines set at factory defaults 4 to 20 and told to let the machine sor...

Re: Help with Pressure Settings for New APAP User

I don't think it's a good idea to just adjust settings without consulting a doctor, personally. then be prepared to tut-tut a lot, because forum members DO believe in adjusting pressure. I don't find it annoying if people want to change their pressure. I don't find it annoying that the OP wants to ...

Re: Help with Pressure Settings for New APAP User

I don't think it's a good idea to just adjust settings without consulting a doctor, personally. Given my druthers, I’d love to be working with a doctor who was truly knowledgeable and committed to working with us to get to a satisfactory pressure. But instead I get a nurse who just blindly parrots ...

Re: Help with Pressure Settings for New APAP User

If I remember right, my inbound pressure is like 19. Very high. I have to use a F&P Forma full face mask, because it has a chin cup that helps a bit with leaking. I also have to fit it fairly tight. It's a balancing act trying to cinch it down as much as possible without going too tight. I had to le...

Resmed AirCurve 10 S Battery with AC Inverter

Hi All, We are in the process of buying a travel trailer and looking at battery/solar solutions that will power my AirCurve 10 s bipap machine.
