AHI higher with DreamWear Mask
#1
I switched from the P10 to the DreamWear Mask last night and my AHI went up from 1.7 with P10 to 4.2 with the DreamWear Mask. I slept for 6 hours without any problems however could not go back to sleep after awakening. I will give it another try tonight and see if it remains high. I did raise my pressure to 9 and it did help me feel better about getting enough air.

What was the breakdown of your AHi? It is possible that raising the minimum pressure increased central apneas. My AHI averages about .2 less on the Dreamwear versus the P10 and both are well below 1.
