I think you'd find it much more comfortable, and at worst, you'd possibly see an increase in CA events, which I think your machine is labeling UA. If you zoom in on the flow rate line during the UA events, we could probably tell what they are. It would also be interesting to see what the flow rate looks like during a period of sleep. It's your choice, but if I was in an experimenting mood over the weekend, I'd try a night with lower IPAP.
I tried over the weekend IPAP of 16. My AHI went up to average 30 and a max of 43. The second half of the night I went back to 18 and the AHI dropped back to average 5-10. It was definitely easier to fall asleep at 16 but my events went way up. See attached.
My two biggest issue now are falling asleep with all the pressure and the fisher mask leaked really bad last night. I'm wondering if it can handle the pressure.
