Hello. I am Ellan. I have Sleep Apnea and Diabetes and I use Oxygen with my CPAP. It connects into my CPAP machine. But the CPAP is not working. I had a nightmare tonight and woke up with a pounding headache. And most days I do wake up with a headache. How much control do our doctors have over our CPAP machines? Can someone please tell me?! Because I want to figure out who is to blame for the fact that the machine is not working! Thanks! :) PS I am very worried that I am going to die from this disease of Sleep Apnea because it is NOT being controlled!

Yes, at least the ResMed machines can be adjusted over the internet. However it is not normal practice to change any settings without your permission. You may be best to return to the sleep clinic to discuss your issues and see what adjustments they suggest. If you take the SD card that is in the machine with you to the visit they should be able to look at the data on it to see what is going on.

Ask your doctor to look at the data on the machine. You might not have a high enough pressure.

What brand of machine do you use?
