not a heated hose. and I don't like the humidifier I removed it from the machine. I didn't use it when I used to use cpap either.
Thanks again. one last question would you know why after not even an hour I will be shivering cold like a mothef---er? and when I rip the mask off I stop feeling froze. and I never get cold.
thank you for the kindness and answering my question. it did show me how to change it. I changed it didn't help much. I just cant rest or restore since Ive been a child I have accepeted that haha
and yeah mainly central and respiratory distresses, hypopnea in the polysomnography Im pretty sure I remember them telling me that. I don't think there was any obstructive. maybe 1 or 2 osa events.
i think you hit the nail on the head wow that does seem right!, i exhale and its 8 and when i inhale it is 11 but sometimes its went up higher even in a short amount of time and then it goes back down and up again and feels hard to breathe sometimes its just odd.
thanks a lot for the response. i was permanently banned on the cpaptalk so i figured id post here about this.
I wanted to lastly ask you im 24 when I was like 18 or so they had me on cpap, now its this machine after a couple polysomnography earlier this year. what does that indicate to you? I also had REM without atonia similar to the mm2 thalamic Creutzfeldt-jakob patients. and I know when it comes to these sleep doctors they are a different breed. they are not like a neurologist. seems like its hard to get help from sleep doctors
I have the Respironics dreamstation
I clicked the button and the ramp button and went to my therapy on the machine and I don't understand what this means.
there are five boxes and the first says 'AUTOB' second says 'IPAP 20.0' third says 'EPAP 8.0' fourth says 'PS 3.0' fifth says 'PS 7.0'
that is apparently my therapy can anyone translate that for me? and which one would I need to edit to bring down the pressure a little bit myself? you can change it on the machine.
The pressure is high and messing with me its hard to use the machine more than like 30 mins to an hour. I actually used to use cpap. bipap is hard but the docs think I need it.
