AHI 12
#1
Greetings! My APAP is set to go up to the max pressure at 20 if needed and my AHI is usually around 12. I can't set the pressure any higher. What do I have to do to get my AHI down to 5 or under?

Thanks!

How long have you been on cpap therapy?

Since you are using rescan, do you know what your 90% pressure normally is, and what the breakdown of your AHI of 12 is? Is it mostly obstructives, hypopneas, or clear airways? If you could give us a little more information, we may be able to help narrow that pressure range for you and knock down that AHI number a bit.
