Your profile suggests you are using Dreammapper software.  I would strongly suggest you upgrade to SleepyHead and consider posting some charts.  We have had great luck with the soft cervical collar in reducing very high obstructive apnea rates. This link shows how dramatic these improvements can be http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...onal_Apnea 

Don't forget to update your user profile to show what the actual name of your machine is (Dreamstation Auto, Pro?) and the pressure your are using. Hopefully we will get you to upgrade your software too. Also don't forget you can get the clinical manual for your CPAP from the forum https://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-p...tup-manual The clinical manual gives you all the inside information on the controls and what they do.

Downloaded Sleepyhead and could not get it to work with Dream Station and read somewhere that it is not compatible.

I have a Dreamstation, and have been using Sleepyhead for my data without a problem... so it is compatible I think. 

My respiratory specialist was super impressed a couple of weeks ago when I handed him a screenshot printout of my numbers for the last 12 months.
He said he was more than happy to sign off on my annual review to maintain my professional driving licence based on what I gave him, and the level of data was more than the clinic technicians where my CPAP was purchased from normally supply to him when they download from my Dreamstation with the dedicated software program they have for the machines.  Cool
