    I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and cannot tolerate the pressure from my CPAP machine. I have used distilled water and the heater but the high pressure hurts my nasal passage. As a result I do not use the CPAP equipment and want to know how I can adjust the pressure down. If necessary I will adapt a valve to the hose and adjust it physically but would prefer the let the machine do it.

    Thank you Seamus

    What type of CPAP do you have? Are you using a mask or nasal pillows? what do you mean by hurting your nasal passage? I found that using a humidifier made it a lot easier to use my machine.
    The problem with reducing your pressure will be that at a lower pressure the machine won’t be as effective and usually the pressure is set based on what you need to achieve a result.
    Most machines can be adjusted and you can generally find out about adjusting your machine on the web, just takes a bit of searching.
