Troubleshooting S8 Autoset II Pressures
I have a Resmed S8 Autoset II. I jailbroke it earlier this year when my official pressure essentially stopped working for me. I work on offshore rigs, and while I realize I need a new sleep study, I haven't had time between work and being gone, wedding stuff and other issues.

Anyway, I have noticed that when I check my numbers on the machine, my ahi has gone up to 3.9 and yet the lowest pressure is 15.0 psi. I have it set currently to go from 15-20. I tried less but my AHI went up to 9 and it seemed like it wasn't keeping the pressure high enough. Since the average pressure is staying at 15, it doesn't look like it's making any adjustments.

I don't have a card reader yet so I can't take the info from the machine, but should I make any further changes? Drop the pressure to see if it's wanting to be lower, increase to ensure it's high enough? I feel okay, but a little tired, though that might just be cause we're not drilling so it's dull out here.

My official pressure is 15.4 psi. I don't remember the leak levels but it's like .28L or something like that? Suggestions or comments would be helpful.

My apnea was diagnosed as moderately severe.
