I actually really like the numerical effect of increased pressure, and think you would have done better holding at higher start pressure. Looking at how little the pressure fluctuated, and how much snore relief you got, I am surprised you had such a rotten night.
How is sleep going in the past few nights?
Now that you have sleepyhead to look at, I imagine you'll notice fluctuations night to night.
Dedicated to QALity sleep.
You'll note I am listed as an Advisory Member. I am honored to be listed as such. See the fine print - Advisory Members as a group provide advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies. Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment.
Over all I am much happier with the 7.5 - 12 settings But still think there's some dialing in to be done. Since the change the sleepyhead stats have been pretty constant - here's last nights summary:
You had an AHI of 0.47, which is considered pretty darn good
You machine was on for 6 hours, 22 minutes and 31 seconds.
You had no major mask leaks (maximum was 4.00 L/min).
Your pressure was under 10.7cmH2O for 95% of the time.
Interestingly, I'd have to say I felt better rested with the initial low starting point of 6, than I do with the 7.5. The starting pressure of 6 was uncomfortable (felt like I was suffocating) but the numbers and how I felt in the morning both support that I had a better result. Still puzzled by this.
