AHI Got Worse after I got my own machine

RE: AHI Got Worse after I got my own machine
I am back everyone Smile

Been using a Soft Cervical Collar for about a month now, and AHI has been varying between 2.0 and 5+ (Please see attached screen shots)

Can someone please read the data and let me know if there are any areas of concern?

And btw, the Dreamwear Hybrid Mask I use starts leaking when the pressure gets high; and the noise keeps waking me up. Is there any other mask which can provide a better seal at higher pressures?

RE: AHI Got Worse after I got my own machine
Both charts have clusters of snores and obstructive events, so the collar is not adequately supporting your jaw. There really is not a correlation between pressure and leaks, however any mask that uses tubes along the side of your face will be louder when pressure increases. Both Resmed and Innomed have hybrid masks with front connectors.
