I started CPAP therapy 2 weeks ago. I'm using a resumed auto airsense 10 with an amara view full face mask. My pressure setting is 6-14 (my AHI was 82 on one day, 49 on the other during my sleep test). Resmed's s/w is measuring a high daily level (11 to 23 so far) of A/H incidents. Since I am a fairly smail female, I swapped out the original Quattro Air mask for the amara and got significantly less leakage, but no improvement in incidents. The number of incidents are actually increasing rather than declining.
I have 2 questions- on the average, how long does it take to start feeling better? And, would a higher maximum pressure setting create a lower incident score?
Oh, I have ordered an SD reader so will be able to read my card soon.
Thanks so much for any advice. There sure seems to be an incredible amount of wisdom on this board. I sure am glad to have found it!
