To provide good advice we really need more data than it's high.

Can you post a chart from sleepyhead

If you notice your average auto pressure is higher than your minimum setting, the hypopnea are likely from the minimum pressure being too low. A good rule of thumb is to keep your minimum pressure setting about 2-cm below your 90% pressure or near the average if they are close. The Dreamstation tends to be conservative with raising pressure, and the algorithm favors returning to the minimum setting. This can often adequately treat OA, but leave you with excessive H events. The remedy is an increase in the minimum pressure setting.

Up at the top of the page, there is a link to where you can get the setup manual for your machine. This lets you see the adjustments that are possible with your machine.
                                                                                                                                                                                  
Please organize your SleeyHead screenshots like this.

What is your 90% pressure?
A good rule of thumb is to set minimum at 2cm below and 2cm above the 90% pressure.

Of course, we would like to see your data before further advising.
