RE: questions to my new apap
So what would you advice me to do ? 
Furthermore i had some trouble with gastritis, reflux and bronchitis in the past. All of them in a chronic way. I dont know whether that information helps but i hope it does.

How do you feel now?
We have the obstructive and UARS under control, and your centrals at a manageable low level. Going forward is based on oow you feel, and be critical.

Options are

to hold here and monitor.

Get a VAuto now, which you don't need for what it is designed for, obstructive events. It may help with the bronchitis if that worsens and leads to difficulty breathing. This can always be done later.

Work on improving comfort now. Do what? I don't know how you feel other than anxious.

About the leaks? Full face mask is the best option in my opinion.

CPAP therapy has been known to help with reflux. Also with anxiety.

My best advice to you is to be patient. Keep monitoring your data and posting the results here like you are doing, but adjust your expectations. CPAP therapy is an instant cure for some, but for most of us adapting is a struggle. The good news is that the adaptation period ends and the suffering stops.

If you continue to sleep without the CPAP machine the adaptation period is, well, how to say it ... ? You can't adapt to something unless you do that something. And you can't half do it. You have to make a commitment to do it whenever you sleep. Even for a short nap.

RE: questions to my new apap
I am still quite tired. 
So i dont need a Bipap for now, meaning a bipap would not make better results ? 
If you are asking about my emotional state i am a complete wreck.

A BiPap will not hurt you but any benefits would be marginal. If/when you need a new machine I'd get the VAuto, keep the same effective identical settings, they are called by different names, then up the Trigger setting a notch. But I expect that to be a marginal change. There is no harm, other than to the pocket book, for the upgrade

Lots of mouth-leaking.

Leaks could be a contributing factor.

Your central apnea index is too low to be clinically significant. It will anyway drop as you adapt.

I agree.
You could make them go away overnight by spending $4-7000 USD on a ASV and because of the way it works you would most likely feel worse.

Stay the course for now.
