I don,t use SH but on the Rescan you would see when events occurred, the duration of each apnea, if spaced out during the night or in clusters and the pressure breath by breath so really cant say if you need more pressure bc the more pressure the more side effect and the idea to be at the lowest pressure possible without compromising the therapy. Don,t you have a follow up appointment with the sleep doctor bc medically qualified sleep professional knows more how to interpret the data and make sense out it.

I have a follow up next weds....

I messed up the reading last night a bit too... AHI 13.4. not 18.4.. I had 10 obstrutive, 3.4 hypopnia, zero central. They came all in 3 clusters with durations of up to 37 seconds. All of them at max set pressure. The lowest the pressure ran was 1cm below max.

My leak rate was great, right at 4. Couldn't hope for better with a beard.:grin:

I actually had an appointment with my PCP and they asked about the numbers. I was told to bump the max pressure up, but go no higher than 19cm for now. They felt it safe to do so as I was tested up to 21cm and had no central apnea issues during the study.

They had fits during the study finding the sweet spot too... Hench the reason I was advised to buy an auto machine. They told me I would be seeing pretty much this issue.Dont-know
