You don't know if you "need" it unless you are using software and can see how you are doing while sleeping.

What IS a good idea is to fill in your profile, and if you've got a data capable machine, post some charts. instructions in my sig.

Ok, I updated my info. I was just wondering if it's a good idea to up my pressure because a relative told me they heard me snoring while using it and I've just been tired.

That doesn't tell us what kind of machine it is, what's the REF number on the bottom?

(respironics used the same name for various machines for years).

That appears to be the power supply. Need the REF number off the bottom of the thing the power supply plugs into.

Ok, That is a "PRS1 50 series Pro cpap with CFlex plus". older, but not a bad machine.
CFlex Plus is Respironics exhale relief.

Download a copy of sleepyhead, at sleepyhead.jedimark.net, and you can read the data from the card, and find out what needs to be done.

The 450 P is the PR S1 Pro CPAP with CFlex Plus.
And they did stick the annoying Remstar term on it which means nothing except that it's one of a gazillion older Respironics machines models.

It is a fixed cpap pressure machine...it is full efficacy data capable minus Flow Limitations.

That you can use it with SleepyHead to zero in on your optimal pressure to solve the problem of your original post. :)

I have some YouTube tutorials that show you how to look at your data.
