RE: Is there a TOP 5 for Lowering AHI?
Thanks all.

There are certainly more than 5 things that can be done. Actually, getting SH is implied as that is how you can do 4 and 5. But both SH and leak management are both quite significant.

I think very high on the list is subscribing to this forum. How else would I have every known what my top 5 were? I never would have heard of SH, either.

@Ty - so right about being here. if we could just get the website handed out with CPAP machines, hummm,

maybe we could get Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) to work for the DMEs, I can see it now...

Bob (whispering): "Listen closely. I'd like to help you, but I can't. I'd like to tell you to take a copy of your sleep study to Polly Murmer on... Polly Murmer, M-U-R-M-E-R ... on the forum, but I can't."
