Default Re: Sleeping and Breathing

Agree, Pat, many people elevate the head in bed but it's doing it with the lower body too that creates that sweet-spot "zero gravity" position. It takes some trial and error.

If your IPAP is at the highest setting, Pete, there are still other settings that can be tweaked, since it's not just the peak flow but how much how fast how long when. I'd be happy to help if you send me your settings. Most often the IPAP is set too high because everything else is being ignored, and then your lungs can't handle the flow for very long.

Best,
Laurie
