Why am I having trouble breathing with the airflow?
There are a range of features you can use to improve airflow for a better night's sleep.
You may need a Ramp feature:
This innovative feature knows when you are still awake and keeps pressures low to help you fall asleep easier. Once you are asleep, it automatically ramps up the pressure to your prescribed level.
You may need to try EPR:
Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR) is a feature that allows you to reduce the pressure when you exhale to make it easier for you to breath out against the airflow that is coming in. This is a helpful feature to most patients, but especially those with higher pressures. Breathing over a constant flow of air pressure can be one of the most challenging aspects of using CPAP therapy. So why not make your treatment a bit easier!
You may need a Humidifier:
Adding humidification to your CPAP machine is the number one way to increase treatment efficiency and comfort. Humidifiers work by adding moisture to the air you breathe. Also new machines often include a heated breathing tube as well. Breathing moist, humidified air is much more comfortable than cold, dry air.
Designed specifically for women, the AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her is the first CPAP machine designed to treat the female specific characteristics of OSA. It delivers lower pressures and a softer flow throughout the night. This was machine was designed because it was found the women tend to sleep lighter and a more susceptible to the pressure changes and flow of their CPAP machine.
