I recently started using my BiPap machine, and noticed I still feel myself “fading out” when my O2 drops, because I’m breathing too shallow as I drift off to sleep. I know the machine is supposed to force a breath if I don’t take one after a few seconds (I have both obstructive and central apnea), but I am taking breaths; I’m just not taking deep enough breaths to keep my O2 sat high enough.

It’s got me a bit on edge. Anyone out there have the same issue? Can anyone suggest some ideas on how to handle it?
