RE: Feeling Bad Over Good Scores: Help Please
Look in the lower right of the Daily Screen at the drop-down checkbox. See if Flow Rate is unchecked.

Just thought of something that really helped me, and might apply to you.  How old is your soft collar?  They lose their effectiveness over time.  Recently, I replaced my soft collar and my positional apneas declined a lot.  (19 to 5!)  My collar was 8 months old.  It seemed ok, but wasn't.  Hope this helps.

Thanks happydreams, that's a good point about the age of collars.

TiredOne, another thing to look at is style and size.  If the collar is too loose, your jaw can drop and chin falls below instead of being supported.  

There is no doubt that the clusters of Obstructives are positional.  We see it all the time.

Great suggestion about collar age. Mine is 4 months old, so it is relatively new. I started wearing it July 1, 2020. I will tighten it up a bit tonight and look for a new style collar, as well.  When I went to Lincare today, they suggested sleeping on my side while wearing the collar.  They also made certain that my mask F30 wasn't hitting any pressure points. They turned off the EPR, but told me I could turn it back on. They also said let my doctor know that I've changed the pressure from 5 to 7. He may want to do a new titration. (I hope not.) Thank you happydreams and OpalRose. Any other suggestions? I am relieved that the obstructive apneas are positional. Any other suggestions?
Tired One.

If you don't feel successful with the "For Her" mode, you can switch to the Auto mode (Standard). That may help with Obstructives a little better.

Right now, I wouldn't suggest a pressure change until we see if you can conquer the positional sleep issue.
