RE: Settings? AirSense 10 AutoSet
Your profile says your pressure is 9-16 but what you copied shows "Minimum Pressure: 4.0 cmH2O"
If your Min is really 4, that tends to be very low for a lot of people.

Are you using Sleepyhead software?

daveasu,
In another thread, you stated you really like the ramp, so I won't ask you to turn it off, but from the information in your post above, it looks like you have it starting at 4 for 20 minutes.

Try starting the ramp at a pressure of 7 for 15 minutes. This way, you are closer to your starting pressure of 9 once ramp is finished.

When you reach at least 8 posts, try downloading sleepyhead so we can see the graphs and better see what is going on.

Check the clinician menu and see if minimum is still set to 9.

In case you don't know how to access the clinician menu:

Change "Essentials" to "Plus" so you can view more data and the "period" in the sleep report, just below "More Info" to 1 day
Every time, you unplug the machine, the period changes to 1 month

Both median and 95th percentile numbers are excellent but max 43 L/m is on the high side, not a problem as its only for a short time

Pressure wise, the pressure max out but cannot say from the numbers alone without detailed data graphs, whether need to raise a bit
The last we want increase CA events, just to keep up with flow limitation

Hi Zonk!

Got these 2 changes made:

Change "Essentials" to "Plus" so you can view more data and the "period" in the sleep report, just below "More Info" to 1 day

Thank you! Smile

Hi Alan!

I changed the minimum to 9. I ordered this machine from one of the CPAP websites, and when it came in, it was only set to factory defaults. That was one I overlooked.

Thank you!

AlanE,

Thank you for the suggestions!

The last few nights have been much better.

My AHIs were still above 5 last night.

I had a mask that seemed to be leaking all night....

Fixed the link for you. Also check out the How-To for Attachments and Inserting Images. -Moderator
