Novice Airsense 11 user seeking help
After trying multiple mask types, Im finally able to reliably get more than a couple hours of sleep.
I'm 68yo male, and after a taking an at-home sleep study was prescribed an CPAP for UARs with mild oxygen desaturation.
I had problems with initial setup with exhales ( felt like a couldnt breathe) so I changed EPR to full time, EPR level 3, after which i was able to sleep much better.
Inoticed quite a number of Central Apneas which led me to back down the EPR to 2. 
Still seeing many CAs, so I'm wondering if these are machine induced or not. 

I cant tell from my sleep study if I had any CAs or not - maybe the at-home study doesn't measure those?
Not feeling much different after using CPAP at this point, though i know sometimes it takes awhile to make a difference.

7 day AHI average is 5.23 which I would like to lower if possible.
Any recommendations for changing any settings to reduce CAs and AHI?

Attached a few days of Oscar screenshots.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

regards

Jeff

I think I know what is going on but right now it is a guess.
Please post a 20 minute view of the cluster of central events with the standard view which includes the flow rate chart.

For Tonight set EPR=1 then repost the full daily including events, flow rate, pressure, flow limits, and leak rate. Keep the left sidebar with no pie chart or calendar

Thanks for the quick reply.
I changed EPR=1 - it did seem to improve sleep quality somewhat.
I then gathered requested info = attached.

Thanks!

Jeff
