Hello @rfries, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I have been using a CPAP since July 31st, 2018 when I was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. My sleep medicine doctor said the goal for me was to have fewer than 4 events per hour which is I think what you are saying….below 5 events per hour. I took a look at my first 60 days and it's probably similar to what you are going through now and I can relate to the frustration of trying to reach the goal of 4 events or fewer and maintain that level. I attached my first 60 days so you can see my struggle was similar (I think).
One thing that I have discovered that helps me is when I sleep on my side. My numbers go up dramatically when I'm sleeping on my back. I tend to do this a lot when my hip starts hurting and I turn to the other side and back and forth. Sometimes I end up sleeping on my back for awhile due to the pain in my hips. Another thing that I found that affects my numbers are the mask. If it's not comfortable, it adds one more thing in the mix. Here's some information I found that may give you some things to try.
