Advice
Hi to all!

I have attached last nights ResScan report and would appreciate your thoughts. I use a breeze nasal pillow mask and have just started using a chinstrap. The pressure setting is 9-16.6 I had increased it from 16 the previous night. As you can see from the graph the pressure throughout the night varies between 10.2 and 16.6 I hit that a few times so will increase it to 17 tonight) does this look normal?

Cheers

John

this is not an advice, only your doctor can give you such an advice
but for an opinion, I would go for 11-15 or even pick a number and set the machine on CPAP
monitor the result and only make small changes at one time
keep a diary whats going on and how you feel
how you feel is better gauge than AHI
