Okay, I've read different opinions on what the maximum should be, but I trust this site so I'll raise it to 20.
And I'll be sure to set the EPR to 2 then.
I'll post my results in a few days and see how things go. And I'll post charts this time for sure.
There's a prevailing ignorance that conflates the proper "raise the minimum pressure to where it prevents most apneas outright" with "a tighter range" (and technically if you raise your minimum from 4 to 10, that has changed the 'range' from 16 to 10, and those ignorant people think that what's important is the 'range of 10' (it's not) and so "think" they're doing just as much good by creating a 'range' of 10 by setting the max pressure to 14, and leaving the min at an ineffective 4).
The max setting on a machine is like the speed limit (theoretically observed) on a roadway. If you're in a golf cart, then it doesn't matter if the speed limit is 30, 50, or 80, you'll never get to that speed, but if you get in a fast car, then that 30mph speed limit is going to slow you down quite a bit compared to a speed limit of 80.
You may not need
a higher limit today
, but sleep varies, and all
you do by lower the max pressure is preventing the machine from being able to respond to any needs you might have tomorrow, or next week, or next month.
Hopefully that's an explanation that will allow you to make a more informed
decision about why setting the max pressure lower is not a smart thing to do if you're not suffering from aerophagia.
