Adrian, it's incredibly common to have a few central apneas starting out. Stick with it, and they'll most likely improve.

Don't worry too much about the events until you get leakage under control. I'm not sure but I think the machine might misinterpret what's going on when massive leaks are occurring.
I am doing really well now, AHI is less than one. I still have an occasional night from hell when major leaks wake me up several times and when I look at the data I can see the big leaks coinciding with multiple events...in clusters. All those numbers will settle down with more use.
I think when I get frustrated in the middle of the night, I thrash around causing even more leaks, all to the delight of my wife. If you are having some nights with good results, then you are capable of doing that more consistently with some time and experience.
I also had CAs in the beginning and is still get the occasional one but I think a bit of that is normal for most people. Nice thing is that when I machines sense that, it does some things to correct.
