Fixed pressure v. auto
#11
RE: Fixed pressure v. auto
Good strong improvement of 50% here, let's keep dropping pressure gradually until you see an increase in OA or H. The CAI should drop as pressure does, but as we get lower in pressure, we may again want to reduce EPR. It will be a process, but I think we can get you a lot more comfortable.

As SR said, much better but with room for improvement.
Drop your pressure by 0.4 per night and post your Daily charts.  No need for the CA zoom detail unless we ask for it again.  

By any chance do you have your original sleep study results? If so please post them  as it should show if you had any Central or Complex Apnea prior to CPAP.

Hello Emmet

Welcome to the forum. You have the best guys watching over you and I shan't meddle except to say your events appear clustered and could be due to your sleeping position with your chin tucking when you doze off.

I have used a soft collar to help with chin tuck and try to sleep on my side when I can. Without a soft neck collar I was getting a lot of clusters as I was devout back sleeper. These days when I am really tired, I still sleep on my back but AHI are under control with the collar and also the tongue trick I learnt here. It might be you do not need to learn that as you do not seem to have any leaks at all.

Do clustered CA events imply a positional issue?  Emmet has very few obstructive events.

CA events often tend to cluster, but I have never associated that with positional issues or airway occlusion.
