Newly diagnosed and on dream station
RE: Newly diagnosed and on dream station
I did some changes in my sleep position last night (pressure stayed at 9min and 15 max) and used a different pillow (I'm a side sleeper) and I did get better AHI overall).

At this point (other than increase of pressure by .5 to 9.5 min), I'm started to suspect that my uptick in AHI may be due to establishing sleep after wake up, this is possible one of a few items:

1. Positional apnea (cervical collar to avoid chin tuck is on it's way)
2. Pressure on the min setting needs to be increased (I'll dial this in tonight)
3. Using the ramp feature after wake up (I'm going to give this a try tonight)

Initial sleep onset is within 7 minutes or so, I suspect that ramp may help in this situation.

I've attached two screenshots
1. First - AHI was ~6 and shows cluster of events after wake up
2, Second - AHI was ~3 and shows cluster of events after wake up (this was with the new pillow)

CPAP is an aerobic exersize
