no progress in 5 month
     attached is my last night report. Just looking at report it looks ok. correct? but it is not about numbers, it is about patient. machine actually makes me feel worse. i am exhausted, sleepy. i can't get 7 hours of sleep on machine. attached is my best case when i am actually able to sleep, most of the nights i barely sleep and think i only woke up once in 5 months with mask on. am i missing some setting? my sleep doctor is useless. What is therapy option for autoset for her machine?
i started to use SD card for 2 nights but it is interesting i get about 5 days of data. where data is coming from?

RE: no progress in 5 month
You have several therapy options availble on your machine, and with the for her mode at 9-20 with EPR 3 your events are mostly centrals, but in an acceptable range. At this point your priority is comfort not AHI, and we need to narrow down what "feels" better. If I read your question properly, you are a sleeping, why you don't feel better. You are at just 5-hours of therapy and just starting. You need to sleep close to 8 hours per night and give this some time. You don't recover from years of obstructive apnea and expect to feel great after 5-1/2 hours of therapy. There is nothing obviously wrong with your settings or results, you do need to give it time and get some reasonable sleep time.

Can you post a chart when you used the Auto mode compared to the For Her mode?

RE: no progress in 5 month
The data is coming from an old card that may have been used in that machine or another.  You have only had the card for 2 days I would reformat the card and start new.  or just ignore the 3 nights before.  Your Sats page will not be correct either way.
