Follow the tutorials in my signature line. This will show you how to organize the graphs and the layout. Use imgur to upload a screenshot here.

With the proliferation of both CA's and Hypopneas, what did your sleep test report?

What sleep test? The one they did initially?

Here's what I initially got from the doctor:

RE: So, I got my first Sleepyhead report
Your stats page looks a bit like mine in one respect: The hypopneas go way up when EPR is turned off. OTOH, your centrals also went up, which doesn't happen for me.

This suggest to me that you may do better with some EPR, and a lower max pressure. This may require some fiddling. If you think of EPR as creating a bi-level machine, earlier you had minEPAP at 6 and maxIPAP at 9. With your current setting you have minEPAP and maxIPAP both at 9. I'm suggesting that you change your pressures so that maxIPAP gets reduced - to reduce the CA, and your minEPAP doesn't go below 6, to keep OA down. Make changes slowly, to allow your body to get used to the changes.

Also consider other people's advice; some of them know a lot more than I do.

Don't really know how to do that. Sad

Press the home button and power button at the same time and hold.  That will take you into the Clinical settings.  You can then make the changes from there.

RE: So, I got my first Sleepyhead report
I would turn EPR back on at either 2 or 3, and slowly reduce your CPAP pressure by .2 cmH2O - and watch low your CAs, OAs, and HI changes.

Looking at your Prescription Changes, your best AHI was when you had EPR = 3 and your max pressure was 7. I would work back towards that.

I'm in for surgery tomorrow, so you'll have to listen to others now.
