It might be that a fixed pressure machine is not the right one for him or he may have a complicated Sleep Apnoea, in other words there are other things going on other than just his throat…"
I think you mean 'APAP' rather than 'acap' and if so, it will have automatic pressures. It's not really recommended to alter your own pressures, and people only usually do that in desperation if they…"
