RE: How common is it to take months to get AHI under 5.0?
The Hen,

I found that as EPR increases from 1-3 my AHIs increased.

Try EPR of 2 and see if that makes a difference.

While EPR may help you breathe easier, your airway may collapse with the drop in pressure and start your AHI increase.

Good Luck
