AHI creeping up lately

AHI creeping up lately
I have been noticing my AHI creeping up over the past few weeks and not sure what all the sleepyhead data means. I have attached several screenshots and if more are needed please let me know.

RE: AHI creeping up lately
Matt, I only see the summary statistics. It looks like your hypopnea events are increasing. With your Philips Dreamstation set at 8-15 your average pressure is just over 9.0, but your maximum and 90% pressures are higher. Since the Philips is a bit slow to respond, I think I'd add 0.5 cm pressure until the hypopnea goes down. I don't think you need to change maximum pressure at this point. This is not an uncommon occurrence with the dreamstation, and usually goes away with minor increases in minimum pressure.
