My first charts - comments welcome

My first charts - comments welcome
Hi All:
I've just joined this board and wonder if some of you would be able to take a look at them and possibly comment. I have had apnea for ~20 years, but just started CPAP therapy this month.  I have a Redmed Airsense 10 and a O2 ring oximeter.  I suppose I have the following questions or observations

  1. The oximetery trace starts a couple of hours before the cpap trace (i fell asleep before putting the mask on)
  2. There is a cluster of O2 events starting at 2:36 AM right after if put on the mask
  3. I wonder what triggers this pattern right after putting the mask on? I was still falling asleep and oddly woke seconds before my oximeter buzzed the alarm for these events. This leads me to think the act of falling asleep has something to do with them. Each time I awoke, I was aware that I was not breathing which has never really happened before. 
  4. Also noticed that these initial events are not marked as CA, but do they look like CA events? Why are they not marked. 
  5. If my basic issue is Central Apnea, is the CPAP maybe not the right machine, of do  just need a good O2 alarm? 
  6. I also tried to hyperventilate, which you can see in the pressure trace, but it seems to  only have enhanced the following  events. 
And here is the oximetry:

RAre you able to repost a couple of those graphs?  We need to see the left side bar with all the stats along with the graphs.  

Organize the chart according to the instructions in the link below in my signature line.
