andw/the supervision and oversight of our sleep professionals
The thing is, if your health care manager told you to adjust your pressure for two weeks then your health care manager should have told you HOW to adjust your pressure. We have no way of knowing how well you've educated yourself and how knowledgeable you are w/xPAP therapy - and even if we did forum rules would not allow us to tell you how to change your pressure.
Posts about CPAP adjustments and self-treatment:
Although the ASAA advocates being proactive in ones treatment, we can not advocate or encourage making pressure adjustments or other CPAP clinical adjustments without consulting with your physician. Please do not post instructions or how to guides for making adjustments or entering clinician menus to make adjustments. We thank you for your understanding. Do not post links to clinician menus or similar menus not authorized for access by manufacturers; these sorts of posts will be moderated.
The ASAA advocates being proactive in ones treatment by coordinating patient medical treatment with qualified and knowlegable healthcare professionals. Being proactive in ones treatment is not the same thing as self-treating or self-medicating ones medical condition. Self-treatment/medication is defined as treatment without medical care. People owe it to their health and well-being to coordinate their medical care with healthcare professionals familiar with their medical history. We do not want readers of this forum to be convinced, from comments advocating self-treatment, to ignore or forego medical consultation and treatment. Self-treatment/medication is a private, individual choice. Forum discussion promoting self-treatment and self-medication may be moderated. Your cooperation with this is greatly appreciated.
