My ahi jumped from .4 to 4.9. Over two nights
I have been having some trouble with my mask as have gotten a new machine about 3 weeks ago. But l thought I had sorted out the mask a couple of nights ago, hence the .4 ahi
I am away from home for a few days, wedding anniversary.
The first night I got .4ahi but felt awful during the day, no energy
Last night I got the 4.9 reading but had gone out for dinner. I did not eat a lot but did feel very bloated.
Could this be the reason for the ahi increase. I will make sure I don't get the same way tonight even if tonight is my anniversary.
G'day Richard - congratulations on the anniversary.
Somehow I don't think over-eating will automatically increase your AHI. However the combination of being in a strange bed, celebrations etc may disrupt your sleeping pattern which could in turn affect your results. However we all have "off" nights occasionally, often for no apparent cause. I wouldn't worry too much about an occasional bad night so long as the overall trend is OK.

Thanks for the reply
It was a bit of a shock as I just started to get back to where I was before getting a new machine and mask.
