CAN MY AHI INDEX GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS?
#41
RE: CAN MY AHI INDEX GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS?
Stick with the current settings a while longer. I was an early adopter of using a high trigger setting for mild CA and found that very-high was too much. Establish a base-line, then if you want to try a very high trigger, you will have a trend to compare it to. At this stage of optimization, there should be no rush, and a clear intent in making any changes.

I don't disagree w Sleeprider's suggestion to stay the course for a bit; however, I use v high trigger with no problem and actually wish there was a very very high trigger to try. it varies with the individual; what applies to one doesn't apply to all and there's no harm in trying if/as/when you feel your current setting isn't as good as you'd like. meanwhile, letting it ride for now is a reasonable suggestion.
