Your AHI is the sum of obstructive apnea (OA), clear apnena (CA), and hypopnea (H). Ideally, we minimize all of them. As OA are reduced, the conditions that cause H will also be reduced. In simple terms, OA and H (as well as snores and flow limitations) generally respond to increasing positive pressure, while CA can be caused by excessive pressure. Your current results suggest a higher pressure may be needed.

There's a link to a Sleep Wiki near the top of the page. You may find that helpful to study. There's lots to learn!
