New to Treatment - Review Stats?

New to Treatment - Review Stats?
I was diagnosed with an AHI of 134 and my prescription was IPAP 20, EPAP 6 and a PS of 6. I successfully used the machine Wednesday and Friday of this week.  Thursday I didn't give enough time to acclimate and ended up freaking out in the middle of the night and took it off.  

I've already downloaded OSCAR and wanted to check and see if my stats are reasonable.  I don't feel super-different, like some have described, so I'm curious to learn how to interpret my data.

RE: New to Treatment - Review Stats?
Congratulations on achieving this huge reduction in your AHI! I hope one of the experts will be able to take a look at your chart in case there are some adjustments you might want to consider making.

While some people feel better very early in their treatment, it is probably more common for people to see a gradual improvement over time. Your body is adjusting to a lot of new experiences and conditions, and you may also have some “sleep debt” to pay off.

So—patience and perseverance! You’re off to an excellent start.

RE: New to Treatment - Review Stats?
It looks like your off to a pretty good start. it will be helpful if you eliminate the calendar and pie chart from your posts. It makes more data available in the left side panel. Also it will be helpful if you organize your charts as described in the link below. You can change the order by clicking on the left end of each graph and dragging it up or down. You can also resize them. See the link below for complete instructions.
