Please help me fine tune my Dreamstation 2
Please help me fine tune my Dreamstation 2
I was diagnosed two years ago with an AHI of 38.2.  My DME sent me this Dreamstation 2 that I've been using religiously ever since but the data it gives me is...sparse.  Now that Oscar can read Dreamstation 2 data, I'm kind of overwhelmed.

My prescription was for a pressure of 5-15.    Over the last couple of weeks, I upped the minimum pressure to 8 to get closer to my average pressure as I see that recommended often here.  I'm obviously better than I was before I started treatment, but are there any things that I should change to optimize my treatment?

Very high leak rate - any chance you're aware of where it's coming from? Otherwise the pressure might be blowing your mouth open while you're asleep. I would focus there first.

I use the Dreamwear nasal cushion.  I don't notice any leaks unless I move the mask around - it doesn't blow into my face or anything.  I have dry mouth sometimes, but I used a chin strap on the 16th.  Looks like my leak rates are a little lower there, but I don't know if they're appreciably lower.
