Progress? or Not?

My ResMed shows me my "events per hour" via the App

I started out with 22 events per hour and raised the pressure to a max of 20

Now I am at 13 events per hour and I get a few hours of use per night.

I cannot go beyond 20 because I would find it not tolerable plus my machine will not go higher than 20

Shall I assume that 13 events per hour is the best I will achieve?

Everyone says it will "take time" .. but what does that really mean?

Do they mean it takes time to get used to the mask and positive pressure (I have done that) OR do they mean it will take time for CPAP therapy to actually work well?

Big difference.

Sorry about my last response in your other thread... didn't see this info. Your PAP therapy is NOT working. Did you do an in-clinic sleep study and titration? Your prescription is not right for your sleep apnea. Did you see the results of your sleep study? Why the APAP machine?

Agreed, it's not working. Are you working with a doctor or adjusting this yourself? Did you do a titration study? If not, I'd definitely look into it.
