First SleepyHead graphs

RE: First SleepyHead graphs
This is expiratory flow limitation. I don't know much about it, and don't know of a good solution, other than your airway is becoming occluded during exhale.  The other two graphs show and OA and some flow limitation.  If I was only to judge your therapy on these events, I'd suggest increasing minimum pressure.  However, your AHI is only 0.33/hour an these seem to be isolated events, which is why we usually look at the full night as well as these anomalous details.

Thanks, SR. The restriction of three images per post means 
many posts to show the entire night. 

Any suggestions about that?

Best,
