Hello all - Does your AHI stay around the same number every night? I'm about 1 year on CPAP and mine seems to be getting more random?

I followed your link to OneDrive. Your AHI varies from 2 to 8 over two weeks. Your nights over 5 are considered inadequate control by definition of the AHI<5.
OTOH, a variation from 2 to 8 is consistent with the statistical variations seen in most people. i.e. -- a person might see 0.2 to 0.8 over two weeks; statistically the same; but considered good numerically.
Perhaps your settings are not optimal. When you have a few more posts, you will be able to post a screenshot from Sleepyhead.
Over a year, your requirements may have changed. It would be useful to know what types of events are dominant in the composition of your AHI.
