[CPAP] Sudden Increase in AHI
Sudden Increase in AHI
    Hello Guys

I have a question regarding a situation I'm dealing with and was hoping someone can take a look at my Oscar graphs and see what might be happening. For the past few days my AHI has increased and I cannot seem to find a reason why. I have posted an older graph and one from last night. I'm dealing with some undiagnosed medical issues (pain in the back, gas, constipation etc) Seeing a doctor this week. Not sure if related to that but can someone take a look and compare it to an older graph and see what might be happening? Why has my AHI increased although I have not changed any of my settings. 

Thanks in advance

RE: Sudden Increase in AHI

On the 13th you had more CAs and a little more leaking.  I would not worry about either of these.  If you had a lot of CAs in your sleep study lots of them would show up every day.  The ones you have are treatment-emergent and will lessen or go away as time passes.  Your leaks were not enough to cause you any problems.  You are doing great!

I don’t see any real problem but to get the pressure from having so many quick rises you can try to raise the min to 9
