Clear Airway Obstructions
Hi my apnea is really bad after sleep study found to have apneas 116 times an hour I am on a bilevel machine with very high pressures checking my machine results over last 3 months always show between 15 and 25 but all others like obstructive and hypneas are next to nothing but this puts my AHI at 13.7 should I be worried?[/size]

RE: Clear Airway Obstructions
Hi BIGBUCK, welcome to our forum.
You can always schedule an appointment with your sleep doctor and see what the doc thinks. Whats the leak, high leak can mess things up as the machine can not guarantee the accuracy of the data when high leak detected.
SleepyHead software support your machine which you can download from here
