You could. Your AHI for that night is less than 5 which is the goal. Is that about what your number is each night? If you want to tweak the settings, then going up one notch would be a good experiment.

Any change you make, make it and leave it for about 2 weeks or more. You are looking for trends and averages, not just one night. You may want to start a kind of sleep diary. Write down what change you made and when. And then, if you want, write down what kind of day you had. High stress, fun day, bad day, good day, etc. Note how you felt in the morning. Rested, not much, lots of dreams, not many, etc. It can be as short or as elaborate as you want it to be.
That's a good idea but i'll call it a log. Lol

In SleepyHead, you can make notes of any changes you made and how you felt, etc. I don't use ResScan much so I don't know if you can do that in that program.

Yeah, but it's a little box and you have to sit down to do it each day. A little notebook by the bed is easier. You can always transfer the notes into it later, I guess.

Yea, it probably wouldn't work good for someone that doesn't download data every day. Never hurts to have a notebook/log/diary just in case a person doesn't have access to their laptop
