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.

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

Hi mr. walters,

Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement.

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

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

Even a 1,000 mile trip requires a first step. My recommended first steps are getting good shoes and 2 cups o coffee
