[Diagnosis] Average AHI last month of 19.6 - WTF?

RE: Average AHI last month of 19.6 - WTF?
She is currently using a VAuto and it does not appear to be handling the central apnea events. A bilevel ASV machine is specifically designed to handle complex (mixed) apnea and should probably be considered if the neck support and possible setting changes on the VAuto don’t improve things.

RE: Average AHI last month of 19.6 - WTF?
Wow!   So many wonderful people jumping in to help me!  Thank you to every one of you from the bottom of my heart.
So, night before last my AHI was 6.6 per hour!!!  I wore the collar and adjusted pillows.  Last night AHI was 10 per hour but a huge improvement so quickly is amazing.  I haven't uploaded the last two nights to OSCAR yet, but will post them on here  to start working on the centrals.

I really appreciate the links and OSCAR tips.  I'm trying to watch videos about OSCAR, but some of them go very quickly and are hard for an old fogie like me to follow.  Is there a good article or video that shows a little on how to interpret the shapes of the flow rate for example?  

You all rock!

Have you tried the trigger set to high?

I have the same Res Med machine as okniswand . Can you explain more about the PS setting in step 2. ( Set PS=3)?  I don't see that setting on my machine.

What mode are you using, CPAP, S, VAuto? Only the VAuto mode uses a PS setting. The CPAP mode will have an EPR. The "S" mode only lists a minimum and maximum pressure, since the delta between the two is considered the PS.

There are a lot of YouTube videos on this. Search ResMed clinician menu. You can also download the user guide at the top of the site fee for all. 
But to answer your question. You press the round button and home button and hold them down until the clinician menu comes up. Use the round button to move up and down the menu and set new settings. 

But again take a look at youtube

I am set up in the "S" mode. Makes sense now. Thanks.
