I have had my cpap for 2 months and I have great usage hours each night and I no longer feel sleepy during the day BUT I am frustrated by the erratic results wrt events. The number of events do not correlate with the mask seal. I've had leakage of 40 litres per minute coincident with 4.0 events. I've had 10 events per hour with a good mask seal. What else affects event numbers besides mask seal, sleeping on back and being overly tired? Do alergies come into play?
Am I correct in wanting each night or at least most nights to have fewer than 6 events per hour?
Any help you may provide will be most appreciated. I really want this treatment to result in more REM sleep and I don't understand how that will happen as long as the events are above 5 per hour.
