New mask, worse AHI
#1
Hello, friends!

I've been battling higher AHI numbers since changing to a larger mask. I was using a ResMed Quattro size small, but it was pressing down the bridge of my nose. I switched to a size medium and the fit is much better. But, my AHI numbers are now up to 4-6 from around 3. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Paul

More information, please. What type of apneas compose the AHI? What is the leak rate?
Can you attach a Sleepyhead screenshot?
