RE: New member - Self treating snoring problem
Aside from a nasal bridge infection (discussed in length in my other post), I've had few issues with my machine. I'm getting the best sleep I can remember in years, and the wife is happy (No more Snoring).

I've put the AFLEX setting to 3 (the max) and go right to sleep - I don't even need the ramp feature with AFlex on this setting. The machine has been so comfortable that I think it's not even operating when I wake up (but it is, because when I take the mask off it makes the loud blowing noises.)

Couple of questions, the Average Max Pressure the machine applies is 7, the average AHI is 1.1, and it also shows I've had a few leaks (I've adjusted the mask since then and currently don't have any leaks no matter how I sleep - side, back, etc). Since I've adjusted to the machine, and adjusted the AFlex, I'm not waking in the middle of the night any longer. I guess it is hard to say if I was having any apnea issues without a study, but with the AHI so low do you think the machine is working as it should?

You guys are great and I do appreciate your help.
