As you progress in your treatment, you will find patterns that will show you what will help and what won't. Patience is the key. I had apnea so bad when I finally started therapy in 2007 that for the 1st 3 weeks of the treatment, good bad or indifferent, had me sleeping flat on my back with out movement. That was just to catch up on all the sleep I had missed.
Then move to July 2015, I go back to the Dr. for the 1st time since I started as my older machine was failing. It was then that I found out I had a Large Leak issue. I was still sleeping well, felt rested and generally was good with therapy.
So, I started looking into what the hell is a large leak? I found this place, started to focus or "own" my therapy, and when I got a handle on LL's, I went into another sleep gear I didn't know I had. Now, (and my wife hates this), I can look at my data and tell on the average, I'm sleeping in 8-10 minutes.
The moral of the story is, stay awhile, find out whats good for you and it will come in time.

I see these posts with very low AHI's and seem to consider anything over 2 as a bad night. I've only had two nights under 2(1.7 and 1.8). Is it realistic that everyone could or should try to achieve these very low AHI's?
