waking up 3 or 4 times a night.. heres my latest sleepy head

waking up 3 or 4 times a night.. heres my latest sleepy head
I have been waking up last 3 or 4 nights in a row about 4 times each night.
Just wondering if it is something I should be worried about.
Can anyone see any issues with these results? Thanks

RE: waking up 3 or 4 times a night.. heres my latest sleepy head
This is only a maybe.
Your AHI is awesome, can't improve that.
The scale of your charts is extremely difficult to read.

I think I saw a RERA flag where you are showing breaks.  The scale is making me question what I'm seeing.
You are having persistent flow limitations which can, not always, wake you.  By definition RERAs end with an arousal.

To Try you can increase both your EPR and your Max pressure setting by 1.  That is EPR = 3 and Mas Pressure to 16 to compensate for the increase in EPR.

Did you have recent change in medication? Or the medication schedule?

Did stuff like this happen before CPAP?

Results are great, and increasing EPR to 3 did reduce flow limitation and RERA. I see a nap from 3:00 to 4:30 PM with a main sleep session from about 11:00 to 7:30 and then a brief morning session. We'd like to make your nighttime rest good enough that the afternoon nap is no longer needed. Your AHI, RERA and flow limitation is pretty good here so this may be a good place to stop and see if there is a cumulative benefit to your rest. I'm kind of inclined to limit your maximum pressure to 12-13 area to see if less pressure change is helpful to reduce sleep disruption.
