I will be seeing my ENT specialist in about 3 weeks. Can someone please give me some guidance on the events per hour I am having? Last time he said the pressure didn't need adjusting. At 9 months out I am still experiencing events all over the map and I am still concerned:

Events for past 14 days at pressure of 10:

9 6 24 11 18 4 7 3.5 4 2.5 7 3 .8 7 2 .7 9

Am I on solid ground on questioning whether this treatment is working? Still struggling, still scared. Thanks for any insight on this.

Generally the ideal number of events would be less than 5 events per hour. Can you correlate anything with the nights where your number of events are higher (leaks?)? Good luck with the followup.

From my original sleep test I went from 77 per hour to now with my cpap for over 2 years and I have averaged 1-3 per hour ever since. I would request maybe another sleep test or ask them to up your pressure a little more and see what happens.
