[Diagnosis] CPAP Newbie
#1
CPAP Newbie
Hi all!
I'm a 52 year old male recently diagnosed with moderate apnea. My home sleep test results indicated my AHI was 20.3. I'm not quite 100% confident in that number because the night of the sleep test I was very restless because of a pulled muscle. Anyway, I'd long suspected I was a sufferer just based on my anatomy. I'm glad I got my Airsense 11, I've definitely noticed an improvement after only 3 weeks.  I've set my pressure range to 6-13.

Now, I'm getting into the nitty gritty of looking at the data in OSCAR and I'd like to know your interpretation of it. Here are the two most recent captures.

I should mention that I use mouth tape. I did so even before I got the machine.

Welcome to the forum Kevin52 Smile

You have some hypopneas and ca events in your charts with corresponding flow limits-I'd raise your min pressure to 8.5 and set EPR to 3 (instead of 1) keep max pressure where it is for now and disable ramp completely please.
