Hello I recently changed from an airsense 10 to the airsense 10 autoset, I'm gettin allot less events during the night but I'm waking up with a sore head every morning and having to take ibrufen. Its set to self adjust between 4-18, and when I go into the clinical sleep report says pressure is at 13.9. Is that the average pressure or the maximum it hit during night?? Has anyone else had the sore head issue can help advise with this? Thanks in advance

If you are talking about the sleep report displayed on the machine screen, the Pressure there is the average of the 95% pressure levels for each day in the window of time that is selected at the top of the report. The 95% means that 95% of the time pressures were at or below that value of 13.9 cm in your case.

I've not had the headache issue, but it may be just you adapting to the higher oxygen levels you should be getting with using a CPAP.

Hi Chris1979:

The higher oxygen levels should not give you a headache. Instead that should help you feel much better. It's easy to associate the headache with the change in your treatment since they seem to coincide, but they may not be related at all. If this is a headache enough to get you to take Ibuprofen to quell it, then perhaps you should check in with your doctor to find out what's going on.

Waking up with a headache is a classic sign of hypercapnia - elevated CO2 levels. It would seem odd, though, if your CO2 went up when you started breathing better. Talk to your doctor.
