Noob: Waking up constantly thanks to my oxygen meter (~90% oxygen)

Noob: Waking up constantly thanks to my oxygen meter (~90% oxygen)
Hi, I'm a noob.

So I just got a ResMed autoset and it's been two whole nights using it but each of those nights my oxygen meter keeps waking me up because I presumably running low on oxygen. I checked my data on sleepy head and each of those times I stopped breathing for 10-20 seconds and just before the machine ramps up I'm awake thanks to the meter. 

In each case my oxygen level gets to the lower 90s and freaks me out but I feel just fine. 

Since I'm fairly new to this should I play with different pressures now or should I wait it out until I get more data? My settings are 7-15 for now. The highest it ever went was 11. Ramp setting is off and epr is at 3. Thanks.

This is the part of the night where I had the most CA episodes.

can you show us more. The full night for starters, and your O2 readings. Include OSCARs left sidebar.
