[Treatment] Two weeks in, how am I doing

RE: Two weeks in, how am I doing
The mask is not supposed to be tight . The air is supposed to get the seal to seal . It should be just tight enough to stop leaks.

RE: Two weeks in, how am I doing
Perry, the latest results sound pretty good. Maybe we will let that stand for a day or two before making further changes. AHI of 1.5, evenly distributed between CA, OA and H is pretty good. I suspect you will end up trying 9.0 and making a decision based on a comparison with 8.5, so having additional data at this setting is probably a good idea.

Here's a few more days at 8.5.  The average AHI has gone down to 1.79.

I raised it to 9.0 for last night and had the lowest AHI so far at 1.1.

You're doing a great job with self-titration. I did make the call on a pressure of 9.0 earlier in post #15 above.

Yea, with all the bad luck I've had I'm surprised I've taken to this so well.  I'm glad that going around the insurance company and such has worked out.
