Are there standard fluctuations in AHI readings?

Are there standard fluctuations in AHI readings?
I am wondering if differences in AHI readings from 12.xx to 39.xx are reasonable to expect from cap therapy from night to night?

Simply put, no.   A variation from 0.1 to 2.5 might be not totally unexpected.  A baseline of 12 is really, really high.  Untreated high.  39 is off the charts for a treated AHI.

Post some details and sleepyhead screen shots for help.

With a pressure of 14 and you are still facing up to 39 AHI, you may need more than an APAP to treat you. Posting your Sleephead to see what type of apnea events you have will help.

It depends on what machine you are using, your settings, and the types of apnea. You are having.

Acceptable? He'll no.

Post your daily charts and your sleep study results and I'm sure we can guide you into better more consistent therapy.

Sounds like complex or central apnea. You most likely need a change to ASV. Do you have decent insurance?

Peteetah,

It looks like you're trying to post an image of your data, but you posted it incorrectly (so I deleted that post). 

See this post on how to properly post an image file:

Also, please do not create meaningless threads in order to boost your post-count.  You are now a regular member and should have the correct permissions for posting outside image links, so there's no need to build up your post-count at this point.

I've deleted all the extra threads you started.

Thanks & good luck to you.

Ok, read the tutorials in my signature line. This will show what we need to see and how to organize graphs.

Use an outside source like Imgur to post a screenshot here.
