Yikes, and if you are willing to state approximate frame (ideal weight) and whether you sleep with anything tight or elastic around your abdomen, lie on your back, and/or if a medium to large cat or dog sleeps with it's head or possibly body on your waste/abdomen.

Perhaps too much info. If so, ignore.

So here is a small sample from last night.  I hope this is what you're looking for.  I am new to Sleepyhead software. I had an issue with mild airway obstruction at initiation of expiratory phase.  Enough to keep me from falling asleep for a while. I posted a thread about it today.  Advice was to turn off AFlex, and/or increase minimum pressure to the point where problem resolves. Here we go......

5'11".  165 lbs.  Nothing constricting.  Plenty of sleep medication (unfortunately, necessary). Lots of back sleeping due to pain following knee replacement surgery, although I always wake up on my side. No hissing, according to my wife.
