RE: New to this - Need help
Well you may have aroused during the night, but it definitely helped. On the 13th and 14th your 95% flow limits were 0.04 to 0.06 compared to 0.09 to 0.12 previously, and your 95% pressure has dropped, even with a higher minimum. There is a clear improvement in tidal volume, and the increased ventilation is probably why you have more CA events. These will diminish. The increase in pressure on 2/14 is due to an increase in flow limits and it looks like you might have been awake. I can't tell you all this means you must feel better or not, that is entirely your call, but I don't see a problem.

Good to know. I am still learning how to interpret the graphs. So, if it has improved, something else is waking me up, what did not happen so much before I was using the CPAP. I will keep on searching, as it is making me feel more tired than when I was having apneas...
Thanks a lot!
