Having Clear Air Events in Clusters
RE: Having Clear Air Events in Clusters
SleepyKiddo"I have a connective tissue disorder and require the higher pressure to keep my airway open and my obstructives down."

It might be a good idea to refer back to the doctor, about how the connective tissue disorder affects lung function. You may need the PS:5 or more. If it were me I'd go for more testing. As has been said, pressure induced CA are common enough, you may need another machine, the 3 types are, ASV is normally for a healthy lung, ST and a/i vaps for those that need more control.

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.

G'day SleepyKiddo. Welcome to Apnea Board.

What we haven't established is what your breathing was like before you went onto CPAP/BiPAP. If you have a copy of your sleep report it would really help if you could post the summary. (And if you don't have it, you should get a copy). At the moment we don't know if you were having obstructive or central apnea (or mixed) in the first place. We also don't know what your untreated AHI was - you said it's gone up, but it's currently at 10 which is regarded as mild apnea. If you have some SleepyHead daily charts from your CPAP machine it would also be useful to compare that with your current results.
