Could anyone help interpret my OSCAR data?

Could anyone help interpret my OSCAR data?
Hey everyone,

I've been using CPAP for several years now, but I'm still struggling with feeling unrested most days. Despite being young, in good physical shape, and having a very low AHI, I haven't received many new insights from the doctors I've consulted regarding how to improve my sleep apnea treatment.

My girlfriend recently pointed out a couple of additional relevant details:
  1. I tend to tuck my chin while sleeping, causing my head and neck to droop forward.
  2. There are periods during sleep when I unconsciously open my mouth, causing the CPAP air to escape.
I would genuinely appreciate any assistance or insights. This community is awesome and I'm grateful for the generosity and advice shared here.

Welcome

I suggest that you raise your beginning pressure to 7.  Most adults feel a little air-starved with your present setting.  It would also be good to raise your EPR setting to 3.  This will lessen your flow limits which are a little higher than we like to see.  You have some leaking but I don't think it's enough to worry about for now if last night was typical.
