I started using my CPAP, though I’ve owned it for over a year now and feel dumb for never starting before. My AHI was 35+ before, I’ve now been using my CPAP for a week and it’s been over 28 AHI per night. Is this normal? I have no problems sleeping with it on, and it’s not leaking heavily according to myAir app.

Does it take time for AHI to lower below 5, to an acceptable rate? How long did it take you guys to start seeing very positive results? Should I increase pressure, or reach out to my doctor?

I’d prefer not to have to reach out to a doctor if possible and increase pressure myself, as wait times to get in touch is over 45-60 days right now.

Thanks in advance!
