Great results after first night with new machine
#1
Smile 
Last night was my first night using my new Resmed Autoset for Her and while I don't understand much of the data, I think the results are great from what I can tell.

I don't know that there was anything wrong with the way my S8 was working but I couldn't access the data and every time I took it to the sleep clinic they recommended I update.

So for my first night, my AHI was 0.35.
I had 1 Hypopnea and 2 Obstructive Apneas.

I had set my min pressure to 9 and left the max at 20.
My max pressure was 18.34 and 95% was 16.38.
Do you think I should increase my min pressure or wait a bit longer? I only set it at 9 as that was the min setting on my old machine.

I am feeling very overwhelmed by all the graphs and data but I'm hoping to make sense of them over time.

Download the Sleepyhead software, and wait a few days to post a screenshot, then we can better advise you. But it does seem an adjustment should be made if your 95% stays at 16.
Your AHI is excellent, so no need to make changes yet. How is your leak rate?
