Newbie sharing results of lower AHIs

Newbie sharing results of lower AHIs
I just wanted to share latest results of my AHIs since implementing advise from board members. During December my AHIs were below 10 and since Jan 4 they've been below 2. 

Here is the link to Sleepyhead charts: https://imgur.com/a/Jn1VT

On Jan 4, I raised pressure to 11, started wearing cervical collar. I also switched from ffm to nasal pillows (much more comfortable). These are the lowest AHIs since I starting using CPAP on Dec 4, 2018. I am quite pleased with results.

Thanks

Looking good. As you found on most of your charts. The dreamstation minimum pressure does like to be just a bit under 90/95% number.

From machine or charts for auto-cpap, set the min 1cm below median pressure, or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

Well done Mr Walters, it does pay to persist instead of throwing in the towel.
A drop from 10 down to 2 is very good.
You might be able to get it down lower, but you might not feel any better than you are now.

So well done on your efforts Smile

I am NOT a doctor.  I try to help, but do not take what I say as medical advice.

I am just a long term user of c.p.a.p. and therefore I have some experience in using these machines and equipment.

However, I am NOT an expert, so advice given should be taken as given in good faith only and NOT medical advice.

Every journey, however large or small starts with the first step.   Coffee

Well-done Congrats on great progress, mr. walters. Best wishes that the therapy continues to do well for you.

I'm not a doctor in real or fictional life. My posts include opinions based upon user experience regarding CPAP therapy and should not be considered medically professional direction or advice. Even a 1,000 mile trip requires a good first step. My recommended first steps include getting good walking shoes, 1 great cup of coffee, and a good GPS.
