Hi GrammaBear,
Sounds like, so far, your pressure adjustment was a good one, hope things continue to go well for you.

My husband commented that perhaps the sleep doctor would not be impressed because I changed the machine pressure. Guess I will find out.

GrammaBear,
My sleep doctor didn't like me changing pressure either, but he agreed my numbers were a lot better than the setting of 4 to 20 he set my machine at!
I'm happy your AHI is improved, just watch it for awhile, and don't get too worried if it goes up and down. Mine varies from .4 to 1.5.
