CPAP air embolism ?
mikepn posted:
I use a CACP machine and have developed chest (lung) pains in the morning. After visiting my GP, asthma doc, the sleep disorder facility and the CPAP provider no diagnosis was given. I tried a different compressor thinking that it was giving to much pleasure and the problem went away for a few months but now is coming back. Does anyone know if it is possible that to much pressure from a CPAP machine could cause an air embolism on a minor scale?
