AHI went higher to 38 on second night of usage

Thanks, in advance, for any insight you can give me. I’m a new Cpap user. I was just diagnosed with severe OSA (AHI of 33 with severe desaturation drops). I got a Resmed Airsense 10. On my second night of usage, my AHI per hour was 38 (which is higher than my testing AHI). My mask seal was rated “good”. I’m currently using the Resmed Airfit F20. I’ve also tried the Philips Respironics Dream mask with similar results. Leak was also rated as “good” on this mask as well.

My question is…does it take the machine a few days to develop algorithms to help my sleep apnea, or if the AHI doesn’t improve in the first couple of things, does that mean it isn’t working? Is it unusual for the AHI to be the same (or worse) at first, but then it improves in a few days?

We need more details to come up with ideas on what is needed to get your AHI numbers down.What to do will depend on what is showing on the detailed report.

Post the detailed report in the format I showed in the “how to post images” thread.

You probably need to download and read the manual…I suspect you are going to need it.https://www.respshop.com/manuals/ResMed … %20her.pdfThis manual isn’t the same manual as the user manual you probably got with the machine. It contains some more and very special information in it.

I may have to RISE but I refuse to SHINE.

You need the “real” manual–get it. I had the manual before I picked up my machine.Downloaded it at work–sent it to the printer before I counted the pages.Don’t do that!I nursed the printer until the incriminating pages could be snuck out of the office.
