Mild Sleep Apnea (but still tired)

RE: Mild Sleep Apnea (but still tired)
@mper6794 Are you suggesting increasing my minimum EPAP setting to 5.4 so my minimum IPAP is 9.4?

... Sorry......not exactly. Before taking a look at some on some 10min-windows, i am afraid i would not be able to suggest any changes on your EPAPmin 5.0 and PS 4.0. 
What i tried to say is just dminish your Pmax to something very close, or even equal, the sum (EPAPmin+PS = 9.0), aiming at avoiding any disturbance (on your already disrupted sleep) of the machine's autoset bumps in pressures when false events are flagged (this appears to  be common in your case, like mine, and in all people with very disrupted sleep). Such decrease in Pmax would be viable because chances of true flagged obstructive events in your case, like mine in current stage, would be very low.
Good luck

...unrealized, serious sleep disturbance (in, particular, dificulty in back to sleep after early morning awakenings), due to bumps (due to false FL, OA, snoring) in pressures, jeopardized my therapy for some 3 months or more, until recently when i found out It and properly correct.

To avoid confusion, Pmax is not a thing; you mean max IPAP ;-)

...not exactly...Pmax is that thing you have to set in the vauto or others, ....last brainfog's chart is 14.0....i am suggesting to lower It to 9.0

I'm just saying that you need to use consistent language or you'll confuse people. You are talking about the max IPAP settting.

And your suggestion is to lower is so it's almost working at fixed pressures.

Yeah no Pmax here. Just Max IPAP. Maybe it is a regional difference if you change which language you use on the device?

Despite misunderstanding what @mper6794 was suggesting, I went ahead and did it anyway and wound up having a decent night's sleep (based off of feeling better than average this morning).

RE: Mild Sleep Apnea (but still tired)
Update: Increased the base IPAP from 9 to 10cm (range is 10-14) a few nights ago. Had one night with 0.00 AHI and woke up feeling pretty decent. Following nights had higher AHI, but also woke up feeling decent. Feels like I'm heading in the right direction.

Question: are the CAs actual events and if so, should I try to eliminate them? Anything else stand out?
