I'm new to the forum but no stranger to sleep apnea. My first sleep study was six years ago. My most recent sleep study was December 2012. I received my resmed s9 auto the first week in January 2013.
My first cpap machine was set for a constant 8.
The current settings are 7-15 on the s9 resmed auto. World of difference in my sleep with the s9. However, I'm still tired, but not nearly as bad.
After reading some posts on the apnea-board, I downloaded the sleepyhead software and from what I've read, it appears my readings are still high.
I use the full face mask ResMed Mirage Quattro with the s9.
My question here is, Is it possible to get lower numbers or would bpap be a better choice?
Here's the data
