Although I was unable to get data from my machine for import into software -- due to the odd data card and unobtainable card reader -- I was able to get it from the clinician menu. Thanks to now having the manual.
My AHI is around 5.8 and is very close to that over the last week, month, 6mos, and 1 year.
That sounds rather good for a person whose initial sleep study showed 32 per hour.
I have OSA without centrals. Should I look for a better AHI than 5.8?
I have an option to get a new study since it's been 4 years since my original.

Well the docs like it to be below 5.
Are you having problems with leaks?
Hang in there for suggestions.
justMongo, I have a sleep study every two years just like a check up, to make sure my pressures are right etc. An AHI of 5.8 is good versus 32 but the lower the better. There could be some reason why it is not lower that can be easily fixed. The other thing to consider is how you feel each day and whether you still have symptoms.
