BIPAP Results ?

Post by KENSKIP1 » Mon Jun 20, 2022 3:52 pm

Well I guess the title says it all. I have been using the device for around 18 days. I have the pressure set at 8 and 12. As of now I have had very little if any improvement in my physical well being. My attitude is the same. Watching TV or resting I doze off almost at once. Have been using ResMed web site along with "Oscar" I do sleep more soundly however, I wish that I had more energy. Is old age catching up with me? BTW,I went to sleep without the "machine and my sleep was a travesty. Hopefully I will get some improvements in the near future, Ken

If your sleep is worse without the machine...and better with the machine then you already have seen some improvements.
The fact that you still don't feel improvements in the other areas where you wish to see improvements means either the therapy isn't optimized yet (if I remember right you aren't using the prescribed settings because you changed things) or maybe it's just going to take some time.

Your settings don't really tell us much.
That's why we need to see the reports...the actual results of those settings.

Understood. Now the big question is how do I go about doing this?

You won't be able to use the forum attachment feature to share images. It's full.
You will need to host the image on a photo hosting website. I use imgur.com. It's free.
