I have had a Dreamstation for about 1.5 years. My pressure is generally around 11.5. In the last 10 days or so my nightly 90% has been between like 17-19. I have also noticed that when I removed the mask, I don't hear air blasting out like it used to. Also, when exhaling with my mask on it feels like the machine just stops pushing air in all together.

Has anyone experienced this before?

It'd help if you posted some data.

Instructions below, in my signature lines.

I don't know which data specifically you are looking for. Here are the monthly numbers for Feb vs. December. As I said, within the last 10 or so days the numbers have changed drastically. The December numbers match closely with the previous year of data.

So it turns out I changed my hose and mask but not my filter. It seems the filter I had was just bad. The timing of the issues directly correlate to when I previously changed filters. I swapped it out and it was back to functioning normally.

I'm starting to notice a pattern of "my dreamstation is broke, oh, wait, I changed the filter and it's ok".

Must remember to suggest 'check the filter' to people.

I think it might be best to check the filter at least every month, regularly.

I have noticed this as well and will try to remember to offer "change filter" as first option to try when someone is having problems.
I think it might be especially the white fine filter involved that is the trouble maker.
Hard to remember everything though especially when we don't use that machine.
