Since I somewhat regret not starting out with the Bipap first. My ideal pressure setting is 12(minimum pressure with an AHI consistently below 1.5) however I am only able to use this setting semi-comfortably due to the AFLEX. I question if I am ultimately getting less oxygen during the night than the ideal.
I believe ( but I cannot prove within uncertainty limits of side-effects) that my ideal pressure difference is that of 5 instead of 3. (Heuristic–minimum pressure difference to exhale fully).
Are there O2 blood-level studies comparing the two? Do certain side effects increase with a larger pressure difference?
