Setting BIPAP Pressure in Regular CPAP Mode
My husband just began using the Resmed vpap S9. He says that the pressure is not high enough and he feels like he has to struggle to take in a breath. I know this machine is auto set but can it be put into a manuel mode where we can set it where his old bipap machine was set? New machine says he breathes in at 10.0 and out at 4.0. The old one was set at 12.0 in and about 8.0 out if that makes sense? Is it possible the humidifier is making him claustrophobic and that's the issue? Or could he be used to the machine doing the breathing for him and now it's more him? The humidity is set at I think 3.5. Also does the sim card have to be inserted to operate the machine or is that there just to record what happened during sleep?
Hope you can enlighten me. Thanks.
