In a simple language, meaning ....

I'm not sure what you mean. Are you asking a question?

The A10 reports unintentional leak rate. 10 is not high enough to be a problem for the machine to keep up.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Sorry, I was confused and a bit foggy earlier on. Now after having 2 hours afternoon nap, I can see things more clearly
Amazing, what sleep can do to the mind

Changed Max'/mim. pressure settings from 2/20 to 11.4/18.

Result was not a good night. The 7.27 AHI score the day after the 4.3 Score concerns me.

Am readjusting Minimum Pressure setting to a "10", which is what was suggested.
Any other suggestions?

If me, I would turn off EPR as one-off experiment, to see if that helps reducing CA events
AHI is mostly CA, but % of time in CSR is 0.0
Pressure wise, doing okay, 95% and max down from last time, something like, 13-14 (last time 15-20)

One night does not make a trend, every night can be different, evaluate the results in a week or two
It would help to see the detailed data graphs, but I haven't a clue how to post anything like that, someone may chime in with some instruction
