Hi. I've been a CPAP user for nearly 4 years. It has been 2 years since my last sleep study (pressure reduced from 14 to 7). Lately I've been having shortness of breath during the daytime and evenings, with excessive yawning and some wheezing. Perhaps my pressure needs to be reevaluated. It is good to see this new forum up and running!

Welcome........keep us informed on your progress. Most CPAP units now have the ability to store and download information about how the machine is working. Your CPAP provider can look at that and sometimes tell if you need a pressure change or some other kind of adjustment. If no change is needed, maybe the shortness of breath is due to something else your doctor should check out..

Yes. I meet with my sleep dr in a week and will take in my SD card. Thanks for replying.
