Hi im 26 days into CPAP my prescribed settings were c mode 6. My first couple nights were great low AHI like less than 2 then just kept going higher like 15 so i changed to auto mode 6 to 9 which helped with %90 around 9 so i changed to 7 to 9 and now seem to be running just bellow ahi of 5 I do feel better still waking up few times threw the night but still feel a little better. I would like to get AHI a little lower should I raise the min a little more or is it good where I'm at.
Attached is screenshot from last night

You need to allow the machine to go higher and not limit the maximum to 9....see where it is flat lined at 9 cm for a good section of the night?
It wants to go higher but can't.

Before increasing the minimum maybe allowing the machine to go higher if/when it needs to will be enough to reduce that AHI.
A range of 7 to 9....extremely restrictive range. Unless you have problems with it going higher (like a lot of bloat, gas or aerophagia) there's no reason for such a restrictive maximum. The machine will only go up if it thinks it needs to.

At 5 AHI? I'm at 3 with 8.5 cmH20..... so you still have 2 cmH20. Just bump up your minimum .5 cmH20 at a time like every few day and see what happens... if CA's clear up great, if they increase then another machine is needed, Titration bilevel possibly.

According to Robysue...tutorial I would not take OSCAR with PR or Res Med
as being accurate, would you?

"Scoring a real central apnea (as scored on an PSG) does not depend on the patency of the upper airway; hence there is a higher probability that a real CA may be mis-scored as an OA by the Philips Respironics and ResMed CA detection algorithms"

A PSG polysomnograph in a sleep study study, is more like it. And a tiration,if needed,split study with CA issues, like me is needed soon.

With only 4 CAs during the night, your post is ridiculous

and not possbly lead to more...? you need to think about what you and the rest of your chronies say... which is BS

such as Palerider...

Central apnea does *NOT* cause 'awakenings and or arousals', (btw, awakenings ARE arousals).

PURE BS

Just as this is pure BS

PURE BS.......

Oh yeah I was preached about raising pressure.... which can raise CA'S..... who even knows if they are legitimate CA's to begin with... according to robysue they aren't unless monitored on a PSG.

without proper diagnosis PSG , we don't appreciate your MIS diagnosis.

Listen we know you think you know what you are talking about, but it's best left to health care professionals. Especially CA's. You people are so contradictive its redicuous !

Hey folks....just a heads up on forum member "dude".
Ignore him....known troublemaker on another forum and looks like he's headed that way here and there's a good chance he will get posting privileges removed from here as well.

He knows nothing about apnea or cpap therapy and seems intent on just causing chaos and snide snarky remarks....and I have the same powers here that I have on the other forum...and I am not afraid to use them.

And dude...quit sending me PMs. I am not talking to you at all. You aren't worth my time and I have you blocked so whatever you are saying...I am not reading.

Clean up your act here or you will lose posting privileges here as well.
Fair warning.
Cut out the crap talk....and that's your only warning.
Respond with crap...you will be banned.

You lady are a misguidance and should be ignored COMPLETELY ! Contradictions is all you are.

So I guess Robysue's write up is crap too from YOUR cpaptalk.com right?

You are correct in your thinking.
And his new account he created to respond when he realized that he was gone....is also gone....as will be any further new accounts he tries to create.

I would tell him to go bug SS over on the apneaboard but he has probably already worn out his welcome over there. They have much less patience for crap than I do.
