aflex and epr are not the same thing. they don't change the pressure the same way, and aflex doesn't drop the pressure as much as EPR.

Don't confuse grapefruit and oranges.

last night my AHI was 0.2 with a 95% pressure of 14.6.
Its not about changing the pressure but the way the breathing flow is smoothed out.
Its working

Ya know? you don't care about anything except your per-concieved notions. As a result, it's a waste of my time to respond to you, and try and correct your misunderstanding of how things work.

Have a nice day.

Notice that between exhale and inhale the waveform stays on the zero line and does not bounce above

I have been to the hospital today to get my S9 Autoset replaced and they have changed it to another S9 Autoset .
In the NHS in the UK it seems I dont have any choice what machine is provided.
Incidentally the replacement machine is due for a service in 9 months time so i will have to get it replaced again

Also the replacement S9 had the EPR set to Ramp Only and I had tons of flow limitations and the pressure stayed at 20 for 40 mins last night.
