Does my CPAP pressure tends to increase when I am suffering from a cough and stuffy nose? my pressure was on 15 but in the morning I woke up gasping for the air. at normal days my AHI for pressure 15 was 1. So, do my CPAP pressure tends to increase when I am suffering from a cough and stuffy nose.

Same thing happened to me. It's because the air cannot get through so the CPAP increases the pressure. I normally use the pillows but when I'm stuffed up I use a full face.
