What makes you think you need to reduce AHI? This screenshot from last month is not much to go on. Has your AHI been high routinely with similar event distribution? Other than some leaks and breaks in therapy, it looks okay.

Although your AHI is within treatment goal...

An increase in min pressure would likely lessen the hypopnea component of your AHI.
You may wish to inch it up slowly; and may find it improves around 8 cm-water.
I suggest not jumping straight to 8 as the CA component may increase with pressure.
One can see too much flow limitation.

Also, you need to work on your leak rate. You have too much time in Large Leak.
I suggest adjusting your mask tension at working pressure.

Take a look at the links in Sleeprider's signature (above). The one on how to organize Sleepyhead is very useful.
It would be nice to see the pressure and Leak graph.
