[Treatment] AHI below 5, 10-20 hypopneas nightly, don't feel any different
RE: AHI below 5, 10-20 hypopneas nightly, don't feel any different
Ignore the CAs. Your OSA is not yet effectively treated. Raise you minimum pressure.

RE: AHI below 5, 10-20 hypopneas nightly, don't feel any different
agree, raise the pressure. i was on a resmed auto machine set to 5. i found the kick in of the higher pressure woke me and left me feeling knackered. i raised it in 0.5 goes and eventually have settled at 11.5 minimum, with a 14 maximum. my maximum never goes above 12.8 on my data, but has the ability to go higher.
the higher constant pressure, once used to it doesn't flucuate so i get less disturbed moments and more comfortable than on the lower pressure.
good luck. its trail and error.
