RE: New to forum and to data analysis
She has been getting used to the new Pillows mask and leaks are way down. I continued to see many Hypopneas With the CA's not being too high I went ahead and set the max pressure to 9.2, the min is still at 8.4 . Also turned off the ramp. She has been this way for a few days. CA's have not gone up that I can see. The overall AHI is staying lower now. Certainly could be that a lower max is better.
Also, you may remember her original sleep study had a low oxygen report. I purchased a CMS50F and ran it a couple of nights. I included a document with the basic report. It looks pretty good, so I don't think we need to worry about oxygen levels.

RE: New to forum and to data analysis
Last night shows how the CA's continue to be sporadic. I am still of the believe that an AVS machine will be the overall solution for her. I'm hoping that we can let the current machine give us some good reports on what is happening at various settings. I will bring the max pressure down to 8.8 and see what we get over a few days at that level. We then can go down in pressure min and max to 8.2 and give that a try for a while. That would be following the suggestion that pillows normally do well with a little less pressure than the nasal. I do appreciate the help everyone is providing. I'm wanting to go into this next sleep study with information that shows (we already tried that). And the reports show that this machine can't solve all the issues.

Yes, we are at 7500  ft. That is one reason I got the oximeter so we could get some accurate measurements in her own bed. We will be pointing out the altitude for the sleep study. The sleep study will be done in town - about 6100 ft, and things do act a little weird at this higher altitude.
