Yeah. That confusing. ESP as I don’t know what to look for on the graphs in terms of changing it or not. Stay the course unless I hear over wise I guess. Karen

If you don't get any other feedback, then go for it. Some folks struggle with exhale against the pressure and the higher flex setting helps, but if you are ok with it, try 1. Since you are at 2, 1 shouldn't be a huge jump.  Give it a few nights unless things are unbearable. If AHI seems to be worse, try 3.  Changing to A-flex mode makes a more gradual change in inhale/exhale pressure for comfort but try to change one thing at a time to understand how each setting works for you.  I tend to go off-script and try things but that's up to you how experimental you want to be. At the end of the day, you are your own best advocate.

Just mark down that Respironics Flex level 3 has been reported by some users to be disruptive to sleep or otherwise a hindrance rather than helpful.
