[Symptoms] My Cpap Settings
#1
HI,
I have low AHI but feel terrible. Trying to figure out why. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Andy

You have a lot of leak. It's below the red-line; but may disturb your sleep.
You seem to be tuned in on a good pressure window. Looks like events are under control.

Perhaps there are other medical issues you are dealing with ?

You are doing pretty good by the numbers. Your leak is high and you need to work on that. You're using EPR at 1. Depending whether it is comfortable, and doesn't increase events, you could try 2 or 3.

How long have you been using it?

Thank you for the replies! I have been on Cpap for about 12 years but something always seems to be wrong. I am going to try to 2-3 setting and see how that helps. I also ran a mask fit, something i probably should have done a long time ago, and it show'd @ max pressure a lot of leaks.
