In another topic I posted around a month or so ago I wrote that the Anti Asphyxia valve holes where blowing air into my face while sleeping or rather trying to sleep!

At the time I had a standard type hose which I eventually realized was too heavy and kept the valve hanging down underneath my chin. So when I switched to a Resmed Slim Line Hose it was a little lighter and stayed in place when I turned the valve and hose to the side. So now it's just a tiny bit of air from the valve but that's it and doesn't really bother me as much.

However I did see on a CPAP supply website a little clamp that hooks on to the hose and will clip on to my pajama top or blanket to keep the hose and valve in place a little better.


And Here's The Question:

Sorry I don't know how to do quotes but someone replied to a post to me a while back saying that I should "crank up the EPR" on my Resmed S9 so I will no longer feel like I'm suffocating with my full face mask on.

How high should the EPR number be or should it just be trial and error?

EPR is personal choice or preference.
There are only 4 choices...1, 2, 3 and off.
I suggest people try all the options and just choose the one that feels the best to them regardless of the setting.

I just tried each setting and I do "thank you" for the information and I'm going to keep trying.

With the S9 there's also something called a "Patient Setting" besides numbers 1 2 3 and I don't know what that is.

I am still having problems with lots of anxiety though and I'm going to post about it with a different subject now.

That means the patient can change the setting,without having to go into the clinical menu. put it on that.
