How can I reduce my AHI
#21
RE: How can I reduce my AHI
Gideon, sorry my thoughts when typed didn't include all I was thinking... So my beginning of

"True. That could be air starvation. I'm not at all certain 5-8 cmH2O would be enough to cause dizziness or headaches."

I should have included that I was only thinking too low pressures would probably cause the symptoms BUT it didn't appear indicative of too much pressure.

Maybe it makes more sense now...

RE: How can I reduce my AHI
Dear Dave,

thanks for your helping. My doctor advised switch to ASV therapy, so I use Resmed AirCurve 10 ASV from 2 days. I noticed the AHI drastically improved to 1.4 and last night to 1.0
 
My device prescribed settings: 
EPAP min 5
EPAP max 7 
PS min 0 
PS max 6, so IPAP max 13.

That's seems work!

The pressure set may be fine. What's your OSCAR show you? And are you comfortable and well rested?
