What was I doing "right"?
#1
What was I doing "right"?
Very new (6 weeks) to CPAP so quite low on the learning curve.  31 on home sleep test, with 29 obstructive and 2 central. I just switched from Resmed P10 to P30i because the hose at the chin kept getting knocked around and I got tired of (and from) being blasted with air in the face when the pillows moved.  P30i is - maybe - slightly better.  The jury is still out on whether I feel better since CPAP since my sleep is no better than it was before.

I usually have 0 obstructive and up to 5 centrals, with few occasional hypopneas.  Are the centrals "real" or just a result of my moving around, sighing or yawning (all of which I do when feeling stressed, which I've been since being on CPAP)?  Attached are data from 2 recent nights, one is 5.05 and the other is 0.37, which are pretty much my high and low.  What did I do to get the 0.37 that I didn't do when I got the 5.05?  

Very much appreciate the help.
