RE: Crazy AHI reading
Most likely your minimum pressure of 4.0 is leaving you untreated. Philips Dreamstation auto CPAP machines are far too slow to respond to obstructive apnea when the minimum pressure is not optimized. There may also be a positional apnea problem at work that might respond to a soft cervical collar. It's more helpful to see the full Daily Detailed chart as described in the "Organizing Your Sleepyhead Chart" link in my signature.

You clearly need a higher minimum pressure, but since we are only seeing settings and results, we don't know how you are responding to the pressure increases.

Also, on the graphs, /I'd have events, pressure and leaks as your top graphs. See the link on sleep rider's second link.
