AHI low, what else could be making me sleepy?

RE: AHI low, what else could be making me sleepy?
My view is that the therapy is already better via the Respironics to ResMed change. The only suggestion I have is to shorten or eliminate the Ramp. 45 minutes is far too long to delay therapy and the Ramp pressure of 4 is far too low.

Ramp off. If you cannot handle it let's try some different settings for the Ramp.

Otherwise, let these settings ride.

SarcasticDave and bonjour, thank you for the replies.  I thought I had set the ramp to auto but I guess I must have had it on 45.  I'll try setting the initial pressure higher and move to a much shorter ramp time to start and see how that goes. 

I was honestly quite impressed with the ResMed over the DreamStation in terms of the ability to naturally exhale so I really appreciate all the advice the other day pointing me in the direction of the ResMed as well.

Welcome, and I am sure the ResMed will serve better. No prob on the Ramp; just being your friendly umpire that only calls what he sees.
