Low AHI but pression too high?

Low AHI but pression too high?
Hello, i've been using my Airsense 10 with these settings for quite some time but most of the times i feel tired, i've been using a fixed pressure just because it felt good and everytime i tried something different the AHI increased, also i had a lot of problem with leaks/mask for sure caused by the pression too high, can someone suggest me what to do? Thank you

RE: Low AHI but pression too high?
There's certainly nothing wrong with using a fixed pressure if that's more comfortable. Many folk are sensitive to pressure changes.

Your numbers look good, but if you feel the pressure is too high, turn it down just a bit and observe for a day or two.
Instead of 14, try 13.6 or 13.4.

If that seems good, keep lowering the pressure a little at a time. If you start to see more apneas, change it back.

Your statistics show you did well at a pressure of 12cm.

Comfort should take precedence.
