Higher Apnea readings
#1
Hi, Folks

I have a weird problem. I`ve been on cpap for about 3months, my results have been okay most nights. The Ahi was between 2- to 2.5,
but I started to get leak problems from my pillow, also dry mouth. I decided to buy a ruby chinstrap, It works fine, zero leakage, but I noticed that my AHI, started to go up every night , from 1 a week ago to 5 last couple of nights.Can`t figure it out. Any Suggestions, thanks in advance.
