WELCOME! to the forum.!
Sometimes, it can take a bit before you notice improvements, so don’t give up on your CPAP therapy.
Hang in there for more help with your graphs and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.
Keep in mind that there is more that goes into AHI than our CPAP and mask. There's stressors, environment, food intake, beer intake - the list is long.
Don't make too many changes while you try to figure it out. Each change needs at least 10 days or so (more than a full week worth of your routine) to settle down and show you trends.
AND it has only been a week. Leave it alone. You'll have great nights, bad nights, and What The Heck Caused THAT nights. It happens.
Start a sleep journal. Write down, each night before sleep, what kind of day you had. Anything new? Anything stressful? New medication? Any pains? Dinner out with friends? Later, when you are narrowing down the pressure range, note any changes you made. That way you can refer to it later. Next morning, note how you felt when you got up. Good night, bad night? Dreams? Woke up a lot? Slept like a log in a bed of moss? Write it down. When you look at the data you can refer to this journal and maybe start to see trends. Like, for me, Sunday night's data is always off during the fall. Why? Football! I eat differently, get stressed, get more active than I do the rest of the week.
