"You need to be careful messing around with the pressures too much Tim, because as you've proved, when you turned them down you felt worse, which is probably because you weren't be treated well for your sleep apnoea. It's common for…"

"I don't know this machine that well, does it have EPR?  If it does turn it on, this will help with air pumping you up. CPAPs can make mistakes with people when not yet asleep, people hold their breath sometimes when they turn and toss…"

Hi All,First post so it's great to be here.I've been using CPAP for 10 years.  Recently lost 3 stone and have been experiencing a new challenge.  I've started swallowing air as I fall asleep which then wakes me up, classic signs of pressure too high.  So, i reduce the pressure but then the therapy seems less effective (tired/anxious/stressed next day).Anyway I had my maintainence check a couple of days ago and I've been issued with a Devilbiss Sleepcube Auto.  The range was left at 4 - 18 cm02…See More

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"Its me not the machine. The S9 has been checked by Resmed and no fault was found but the circuit board was changed as a precaution. I have used another S9 but had the same problem. I have been told by the hospital that despite my AHI being under 1…"

Sleep2snore replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"Don't rule out a fault with the machine or restricted airflow. I would also not rule out that you might be one of the few that needs a different machine. In any case, it should not go to 20 and sit there, I would get it checked or replaced. If…"

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"Before I make a decision I am going to try something different. I have noticed that when it goes up to 20 most times it has done so when the pressure has dropped to minimum which is 12 at present. I will increase the minimum pressure to 14 so…"

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"I think its time to make a decision. Either buy another make of APAP or get referred to another hospital which supplies a different make"
Monday
Sleep2snore replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"That is hard to believe.  A pressure of 20 is quite high and very few require that amount of pressure. 1 ltr/min is nothing, the machine should cope with that without any problems at all. A lot of people get mixed up with pressure and…"

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"I thought I had this problem solved but it got stuck at 20 again last night. My 95% pressure was 19, AHI  0.1 and leak 1 l/min. Sleepyhead shows that it was stuck at 20 for approx 30 mins ."

Sleep2snore replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion Cold air
"Don't know what machine ou have, but a heated hose can help a lot. You can get them as a stand alone but it is not ideal. If your machine has the facility for a heated hose it might be worth the investment. Heating the room will help."

Sleep2snore replied to Renee Rowlands's discussion Recommendation please for Oximeter purchase.
"There are plenty on the market, but one thing I would make sure it did was to store the data for printing or downloading. There are plenty that say they do this and don't, so be aware of buying off Amazon or Ebay."

Kath Hope replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion Cold air
"Like you say yourself Ruth, warming up the bedroom will help, but also if you don't have a heated humidifier then that would help - as will covering the tube with a Hose Cover."
