[CPAP] New to all this, trying to make sense and better my treatment
#61
RE: New to all this, trying to make sense and better my treatment
Thanks for your continued assistance, it means a great deal to me. 

Just curious being its an auto machine that has the ability to "sense" how much pressure is needed, is there a reason you dont suggest a range like setting it 9-9.4? 

Here is the past few nights, seems i am going backwards a bit on the AHI's but I should note that as of Friday I had a surgical procedure so my body is still sore and the act of just breathing in beyond shallow breaths hurts a bit but I still feel like im getting decent sleep.

RE: New to all this, trying to make sense and better my treatment
Still going with the recommended settings by everyone here. I think the FL you keep seeing may just be something I have to live with until I can afford another mask perhaps, I need a larger one but I do seem to still awaken refreshed in the morning. 

Any suggestions on the settings or do you all think we are good on that for now. once you have settings dialed in are they generally "set" for a while or is there some point that you want to adjust them again, i.e. your OSA gets better or worse, what would indicate your apnea is getting better, just multiple nights of 0 events or is that more indicative of perfect settings?

Thanks to everyone again for your continued patience/help!
