Here's my story:

Symptoms:
•Snoring
•Very restless when sleeping
•Tired throughout the day
•Always wanting to take a nap
•Trouble falling asleep

Beginning of January saw my PCP to get a referral sleep study. Was diagnosed with a home sleep study as mild obstructive sleep apnea. Supine AHI 12.9 with 3 apneas and 46 hypopneas. I can provide additional information if needed.

Received ResMed Autosense 10 Autoset and Nasal mask N10 on Friday 10 February and started treatment.

After one week, my wife says my snoring has stopped completely and I can say I do not feel as tired through the day. Below is a capture of the last three nights. I think I am doing good. I did speak to my DME today and requested the nasal pillows P10 as it seems I bump my nasal mask and cause leaks a couple of times in the night. Plus the mask is beating up my nose.

Any feedback would be great. Thanks in advance.

Tring to post images no luck Thinking-about

I was able to talk to my DME today and they are sending me the P10 nasal pillows. Hope to receive within a week or so. Looking forward to using them.

Those charts look really good! Some occasional leak issues near the end of the night - perhaps you start getting restless then.

Excellent start and you're going to love the P10. You don't need to do a thing but consider trying a minimum pressure of 6 to knock out the snores and a few events, as well as the few snores. It will level out pressure. If it's more comfortable keep it, if not you can go back to 5, you're doing great.
