RE: What's an estimated time to feel the effects
Luvmyzzz,
Glad you found this forum.
Your AHI of 1.03 is very good. The goal of Cpap therapy is an AHI of 5 and under.

The AHI is calculated by the number of events divided by hours of sleep. It is an average per night.
Sleepyhead and your data capable machine figures this out for you. Here is a link to understanding Sleepyhead better.

It looks like you have a good pressure range. An average of 10 means you were at that pressure and under for 50% of the night. You don't say what your 90% pressure number is, but means the same: you were at that pressure and under for 90% of the night.

Thank You Opal Rose, I appreciate your help, I'd bring the pic from sleepyhead (but haven't figured out how to do that yet) Thanks again!ThanksThanks

I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.

Humidifier may actually help with stuffy nose. You may need to turn it up or down to get the best benefit. Some of us use higher humidity for stuffy noses and some use lower. I think the predominance is higher humidity
