To be honest, many/most do not see little if any results for weeks, if not months (I am rare, so bad that it was a thunderbolt in one night). It (my dream machine) actually changed my life in one night of sleeping. But I was/am very bad, am now and have been 100% compliant all these years as I need my dream machine.
FYI? As stated above, it does take 2-10 weeks for the body to get used to CPAP, centrals can lower or disappear, and AIs can slow down (even with no adjustment).
Personally, I kind of wish that most of us would only see 'weekly' numbers, with the option to zoom in if there is an issue. A person can do the same things, eat at the same times, take the same meds, and go to sleep in the same bed at the same time of night, and get two totally different sets of numbers (yet nothing is 'wrong').

Attached is the data
-- 1 hr of the cluster
-- 10 minute scale at a segment of the cluster
What I notice in this data is that in the ten minute segment, there's a clear repeating pattern of:
(Relatively) Very large breaths followed by a series of breaths of decreasing size, often, but not always, followed by an apnea or a hypopnea at the nadir of the cycle and then the pattern repeats.
The pattern repeats in roughly 45-60 second cycles.
It doesn't look like classic periodic breathing (i.e. Chenye-Stokes Respiration), but nonetheless there is a real periodicity to the pattern going on here. And that kind of periodicity is not all that typical of what you usually see in a nasty cluster of OAs.
I know that almost all the apneas are being classified as OAs, but even still, I would be strongly inclined to think that this just sleep-wake-junk (SWJ) if you had any memory of being restless at some point in the night.
If you examine the entire period from 2:05 to 2:35 does this same pattern continue to repeat in roughly 45-60 minute cycles? I'm not interested in whether the nadir of every cycle has an OA or H scored, I'm wanting to know if the Large breaths followed by steadily decreasing breaths until a nadir is reached that repeats roughly every 45-60 seconds repeats for the entire 30 minute period from 2:05 to 2:35.
