I think I would prefer to keep my AHI events low as I do not mind the present 9cm.
The 9cm was recommended by the one and only sleep study 4 years ago.
I had shown both obstructive and central apnea at that study, however not very high counts, and at 9cm it was 0.
My 3 months average AHI had been 0.3 with the pressure set at 9cm.
I will try to discuss the settings with the clinician prior to him coming to set it up.
I have been using the resmed 10 autosense with the setting CPAP and pressure set at 9.
The new machine they are setting it to AutoSet with max 9 and min 5 pressure.
This change in settings is not based on a new sleep study.
What impact will this have on me?
Should I be concerned?
They say to change the N30 pillow every two weeks.
Is this so they can sell more pillows or do they go bad after a couple of weeks?
Thanks for your help.
If I do not resolve the problem, I will order a new one.
Of course after I get it a new model will come out.
I did not see any silicone gasket that seal the reservoir to the machine.
Thank you very much for the information.
I guess I will put it back to slimline.
If I cannot eliminate the hissing, I guess I will get a new machine.
Wish I knew when Resmed will be coming out with a newer model.
Since I have central apnea, the set pressure is at 9.0.
Does that mess up the pressure by me changing the setting of the tube to regular?
I have found in the last number of months, there is a hissing sound when i inhale using the Resmed air sense 10 machine.
I have changed the gasket to no avail.
Someone noted that if you change the tube setting from slimline tube to regular it helps.
I changed the setting to regular, but still use the slimline tubing and I think it has helped with the noise.
Since I have not actually changed the tubing itself, what impact does the change in machine setting have on the actual pressures that I am getting?
