RE: Whats your average AHI on xPAP
On AUTO my AHI averaged 28 over 6 months, but I did not desaturate and most were hypopneas. Switched to ASV two months ago and now average 11. Seeing the sleep doc today for a checkup and I hope to improve that number. Again I have mostly hypopneas.

RE: Whats your average AHI on xPAP
last 30 days 0.80
last 7 days 0.52
last night 1.37 (6 hypopneas, 2 obstructive)

I haven't been sleeping well so I took a Melatonin last night to help me sleep. Does anyone know if this gives you more events? I haven't used it before so I don't have any experience with it.

Anything like that can increase your AHI. Especially when you first start taking it.

RE: Whats your average AHI on xPAP
Others' numbers tell me I still have a distance to go on decreasing my AHI, but I can see progress since switching to an AutoSet---first as a loaner and now one of my own.
March 7-31: AHI 7.5
April 1-21: AHI 5.7
April 22-May 7: AHI 5.4
May 8-15: AHI 4.8

RE: Whats your average AHI on xPAP
Average for me is about 0.44 which definitely shows xPAP is working since the sleep study calculated it as about 34.
