Bump the min up to 9 and let's see what happens...

You're moving in the right direction.

How did you sleep last night? I also want to know that little detail as well because it's pretty darn important.

I would leave things at these settings for a week and then post again.
The ClearAirway/Central Index is not quite 50% of the AHI and we don't expect it to be changed by the increase in pressure.
I see one break in therapy where you were awake enough to turn the machine off and back on again.
So perhaps a little bit false positive flagging is also happening where the machine is flagging awake breathing irregularities by mistake.

Let's see if you sleep better once your body and brain have had time to adjust to the new settings.

Edit...I now see diamaunt suggest minimum of 9. He's quicker to increase pressures than I am and that's okay.
I am known to be a bit conservative. :lol:

Won't hurt anything to jump the gun.

It's just my instant gratification syndrome, I want to see people sleeping better *NOW* (or as quick as possible :D Sometimes it works... ;)

I know, I know but then I remember my own experience and with time the AHI reduced by 50% all on its own with just a little time as I got used to the new pressures. It was running around 3 ish and with a bit of time it started running around 1.5 and I didn't change anything.

I have attached below results for another day pressure at min=8 and max=20.

As to how I feel -- I suppose the new settings seem ok, though I am not sure I can really perceive any difference as a result. It is hard to tell/differntiate for me.

So far both previous and new pressure settings feel fine.

I suppose there is not much else to fiddle with from here? I do seem to get a slightly better AHI with these settings so I would perhaps just keep it.

Hi Diamaunt, not sure what you mean? yes, the 95% pressure seems to be up to 9 if that's what you are referring to?

I am new to forums, so I hope I do this correctly.
I am having trouble getting my AHI down. My average AHI has been creeping up from around 7 to 11 over the last 2 months. Sleep quality has been diminishing also.
I have been using APAP since late January. I was using ResMed FFM F20 but switched to Dreamwear Nasal cushion and liked it much better. I am a nasal breather. I did have some leaking occurring with DW mask but I think it is stable now.
I have posted (2) charts - March 16 (AHI=6.0) and April 4 (AHU=14.5). I have had almost no mask leakage. I was considering lowering my minimum pressure and perhaps slightly increasing max P.
Does anyone have recommendations for improved CPAP efficiency? Greatly appreciate your help.

Michael....please start a new topic and post your text and reports in that new thread.
This thread is old and dead and not the place for your questions.
Start a new thread devoted to your problems to get the best help.
Most of the forum veterans won't be reading this thread.

But I will tell you this....don't go lowering the minimum...if anything you need more minimum.
The minimum pressure is the most critical pressure setting.

OK I will repost. Sorry, I meant raising the minimum to around 7. Thanks
