RE: please review data
I've noticed you have started many threads, but posting the same graphs.  You may get better responses if your questions were clear and your graphs were in the format that would help us advise you better.

See the links below:  Organize the chart so that you only need to show us one graph.  We need to see the following (in one screenshot), Events, Flow Rate, Pressure, Leaks, and Snore graph. Leave off all others.  

The Left side Bar must be included in the same Screenshot.  We need to see AHI at top, and all stats under that....minus the calendar and pie chart.  Take the time and organize your SleepyHead charts.  


Just a quick look tells me that your minimum pressure is too low.  You probably need to be around 10cm minimum.  


This is an example of how your Screenshot should look.

RE: please review data
there may be more going on that other more experienced members might see. what jumps out to me is the cluster of obstructive apnea pushing up your ahi at about 6:45am and another less intense cluster of oa and hypopnea at about 6:15am. higher pressure isn't in order because your machine max pressure is set at 20 and your max pressure for the night was less than 15. someone else will have to tell you whether increasing your min pressure will help. meanwhile, the best way to reduce clusters of events is to wear a soft cervical collar. it should also reduce the leaks like you had between 4 and 5am. reducing leaks will let the machine better do what it's supposed to do and you should see a change in the data as a result.
