New to the board, not CPAP.

RE: New to the board, not CPAP.
The second is much more telling. That is a sleep disturbance. Prior too note the amplitude of the breathing is diminished compared to the breathing that follows the event. Also note that the after breathing is very slightly diminishing.

Inter}station is you were not getting enough air changed position, an arousal, then held your breath and resumed with deeper breathing.

RE: New to the board, not CPAP.
We can look at any segments that you want to have interpreted. In this section we see a relatively low inspiratory volume and the expiration seems to have nearly disappeared, and it ends in an arousal with large volume recovery breathing ad a CA. Full recovery by 01:50:40.I would guess that you probably found a way to exhale below the mask and that accounts for the pattern up to 01:30:00.  As Fred suggested this is an arousal and a short duration apnea.  It is important only in the fact sleep was disrupted.

RE: New to the board, not CPAP.
Minimizing arousals is the main objective, and taking out pressure variation may help. Set pressure to minimum 16, Maximum 16 EPR 3 and let's see if that helps move the mark. I'd like to try a lower pressure but as I recall we get OA. In bilevel terms your pressure is currently 16/13 to 20/17. With pressure this high, you can easily justify the Vauto.

RE: New to the board, not CPAP.
This confirms you are sensitive to pressure changes in the auto algorithm. The AHI is excellent, and if you are comfortable with this fixed pressure approach, we should continue using this setting for a while before making changes.
