[Diagnosis] Need Help Interpreting Daily Report
#11
CFlex is a comfort setting rather than a therapeutic setting. You can try out the change and see what it does (if anything), then report to your doctor if the results are positive, or go back to the previous setting if that worked or felt better. Your choice.

Unless you routinely have a higher AHI a pressure increase is not your solution. I do think bilevel is something you may need to improve your ventilation volume and improve your sleep quality. At a pressure of 14, you are right in the spot where bilevel can be justified because you can't tolerate the high fixed pressure.

Cflex will cut off your exhalation pretty abruptly because of the way it reduces pressure and then increases pressure. This will not help as much.

You should try cflex+ At setting of 1. I believe that this mode is there on your machine. Cflex+ acts more like a bilevel in reducing the pressure during exhale. It first reduces the pressure by a bit more than 2cm and goes to exactly 2cm below inhalation pressure mid exhalation. It will not abruptly cut off your exhale portion (as much as regular cflex). This will consequently improve your I:E ratio and may raise your tidal volumes.

Other thing to try in addition to cflex+ may be to reduce your set pressure in 0.5cm increments and see the tradeoff b/w AHI vs. sleep duration+quality.
