1st night on new Airsense 10 for her
#1
Here's the screenshot. Do I need to re-arrange the graphs?
I discovered I barely snore at all.
There's a section that is labelled Cheyne-Stokes breathing, too.

I'm thinking I need to allow the pressure to go a bit higher than the pressure of 7 that was initially prescribed on the 'brick' CPAP.

G'day Beej

On the basis of those charts it does look like you need to increase the pressure somewhat. However, it would be helpful to see some more data before making any changes. This link gives advice on the best way to organise and display your SleepyHead data to maximum advantage: https://sleep.tnet.com/resources/sleepyhead/shorganize

By the way, you might like to redact your real name which appears on those plots.

Edit: I don't think that's genuine Cheyne Stokes Respiration - the waveforms look more like repeated obstructive events.

Can someone delete those or modify them, then? Now that someone else has posted, I can't edit those images!

Beej,
You numbers aren't bad at all.
The thing I notice is that your having a few OA's during the ramp period. If it were me, I would turn ramp off.

Also notice that your 95% and max pressure is about the same, which would be ok, except that as soon as ramp has ended, the pressure immediately zooms to max setting and stays there.

The max pressure may need to be set higher just to watch and see.

Just a recommendation on one nights data.....turn ramp off, set minimum at 6cm and maximum at 10cm.

I've deleted them for you. There is a time limit beyond which you can't make changes to a post.

Oh yes, definitely. If you don't want to just go to auto, my suggestion is to raise it no more than .4 and then go 4 nights and check again. Gives your body some time to adjust. If you do want to try auto, set your minimum for 7 and your top at 9 and see how it goes for 4 nights. When you start getting significant improvement, then raise it only .2 for finer adjustment.

Large pressure changes often work against you - waking you up or causing more centrals.

The ramp is supposed to last about 10 minutes, and I fall asleep quickly.
I'll try having it ramp to 7 (where the original 'brick' CPAP was set), then raise the upper limit to 9.0 as suggested, to give it some room to increase as needed.
