RE: change pressure on cpap machine
@yzyanming - and if you just started recently, AHI of 6 to 8 is still a whole bunch better than before, and you might just need to relax and just get used to the present settings. there are good reasons for tinkering and lots of ways to skin the cat, but don't feel you have to go out and fix it all in the short term...

an important question is how do you feel? Are you feeling positive impacts so far?

@bainsworth1a - did you successfully change your pressure, and is it helping you?

yzyanming, it would be best for you to start a separate thread, if you have not already. That way your issue gets properly addressed and not mixed in with bainsworth1a's.
