Yep it sure does. This is what was confusing me " i had 20 events the first night and 38 last night". The data you posted says indeed you had AHI in the high 30's and low 40's. This is way too high and something is set wrong OR you are on the wrong machine-
"Obstructive Index 12.40 11.98 11.98 11.98 11.98"
"Clear Airway Index 21.97 22.11 22.11 22.11 22.11"
This is classic mixed apnea and both are too high. Me thinks you should be using ASV to treat this.
It "could" be from pressure changes though and you min setting of 4 could be causing it. Your machine is set "wide open", 4-20. I would change my min pressure to 8 (2 below average), perhaps in steps and see if that brings down your centrals, if it does not I would talk to my Doctor about mixed (complex) apnea.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You might talk to your doc about this, you might need a different type of machine.
Hang in there for more suggestions and answers to your questions.
Much success to you as you continue your CPAP therapy.

Suggestion: Also, reduce EPR setting.
Why: At 3, CO2 washout may cause central apnea.
And, let's get the proper machine name in your profile -- I wager it says Autoset in the lower right of your machine.
If so, please put Airsense 10 Autoset in your profile.

Richflu, do you remember what pressure settings you were using with the S9 and what your typical AHI was?
If your S9 had an SD card, you can import the data from it into SleepyHead and see what your old pressure settings were and what kind of AHI values you were getting with them.
