I finally got closer to having the Dreamports on correctly. The Lava soap idea helped.
Well, if no one will. I will say a little something.

Now that you have things (mostly) under control.

Give it a few days or a week to let things settle in. Hopefully the Centrals will get fewer and you can start to nudge
your minimum pressure up to get those OAs knocked out.

Come back to this thread and give us another chart to look at if things do not get better.
We will keep trying to help as long as you need help.

Good luck.

Thanks. Everyone has helped me immensely. I'm a lot better than a few weeks ago.

I've been away, and it's nice to come back and see you doing better. Jimbud has given you some good advice. Stick with your current settings a little longer. If you continue to see more than a couple of OAs, you can try inching up your minimum.

CAs can be very inconsistent from one night to the next, so see how those seem to be settling. Your flow limitations are definitely better with the EPR of 1, and so long as it doesn't provoke more CAs, an increase to EPR of 2 (and later, 3) would be well worth trying, given the improvement in the quality of sleep you're seeing with 1.

Bleep’s nightly facial wipes, designed to remove the oils on the skin, you should properly dry your face and skin around
your nose and cheeks. Then you can begin the process of application.
From a chat with Stuart the thing about soap is they're all different and contain oils, lotions and mess of greasy byproducts that stay on your nose after you wash it and it effects the tape staying on. The oilier your skin the stronger the astringent should probably be. Just my two cents, given everybody's got different skin and results are going to vary. If it stays on, then whatever you're doing must work. If it don't, try something that strips out the pores a bit deeper.
