My air pressure increases due to full face mask air leaks. That makes sense. What makes no sense to me is the fact that it stays at max pressure and the only way to get the pressure down, is to turn the machine off.
Clearly, there’s a problem with the algorithm if it stops responding once you correct the air leak. In addition, sometimes my machine will turn off once I remove my mask, sometimes it won’t. Turning the machine off to adjust the pressure is not an option if I’m asleep.
Is this a defective machine? I just had it replaced for the same issue.
I can’t get a straight answer from resmed or my provider.
Having the machine auto adjust to max pressure and then fail to respond to normal breathing and blow the mask off your face can’t be normal.
