Welcome! Your story is similar to some that have been posted. This is an outcomes research site. The goal from looking at the stories is to come up with questions common to them that haven't been asked or adequately answered. There have been posts questioning the information on the LED screen or the function of a PAP unit. A question might be one like do PAP users who know and understand what the LED displays mean tend to use their PAP more daily and longer overall? Do those people tend to notify their sleep professionals sooner when there is a problem? Another question might be "where do PAP users get the most useful information about their therapy?"

Troubleshooting for a specific problem is not the intent of this site or the forums. Because your settings and how the PAP unit operates with your breathing pattern is unique to you, your healthcare team is your best resource. Sometimes the home care company your unit came from is a great resource because they would know if there was a common operational issue with a specific PAP therapy or PAP unit. They also look at a ton of downloads and can recognize a unit is malfunctioning or needs a setting change to improve your therapy. If you want to just see if others out there have a solution for you, there are forums intended for that kind of conversation. You are right in that the research nature of this site does not allow exchange of specific medical advice. The American Sleep Apnea Association has a forum that has just been reconstructed. Give it a try at WWW.sleepapnea.org. Please keep the folks here informed of your journey maintaining treatment of your apnea. Welcome to MyApnea!
