Ok. We need some more information. To begin to help you, did you try to upload sleepyhead charts? There is a link in my signature on how to organize your charts, and there is another link to attach and post charts.

Will be glad to help, but I think we're having some technical difficulties.

Can you be more specific on what your having problems with?

I'd probably set the minimum pressure to 9cm. You might need a soft cervical collar to take care of positional problems.

It looks like you are doing quite well till half way through the night and then something happens. Could it be that you roll on to your back?
