Hi guys,

I have had my machine for about half a year now and im really struggling with getting used to the high pressure when sleeping, there don't seem to be a setting on the machine where I can turn it down a bit. I cant see to get more than 2 hours a night from it because of waking up due to the pressure, or I seem to wake up in the morning with it laying next to me.

Just wanted to see if anyone could help, or to see if anyone has changed anything or had this problem aswell.

Sorry, I can't be of any help, however, I have a similar issue. I use a resmed10 and I can't adjust the pressure, but it seems to have doubled or gone full pressure as soon as it starts, I can't exhale with the pressure as high as it went to? I have not been able to use it for about 2 weeks and I put a call into where it was purchased, but no response and no cpap as it is? Any suggestions?

Which specific model do you have? Is it a fixed pressure or automatic machine? Here is a link to a technical manual for the ResMed AirSense machines.

I have done so much better since I set my machine on an Automatic setting. The difference is significant!
