- Lost a loved one
My 87 year old mother just got her BiPap machine four days ago. Therapist set it up for her, and the rental unit relays info by wifi to the therapist's office, and he can control it remotely. She felt like it was blowing air too harshly into her lungs over the weekend, and I asked him to dial it down for her today. She seemed to tolerate it better...the three or four times she's used it, it seems to induce deep relaxation, and today, after the pressure was lowered, she fell quickly into a good sleep, for about 50 minutes. She looked, while she was sleeping, like she was breathing sort of normally. When she woke up, she felt very disoriented and "out of it", and said it was too much. She only had about 10 minutes on the previous few days. Any thoughts? Is it too much BiPap too fast?
