So, specifically for the DreamStation, have I got this right:
1) I'm going to turn off Flex in the regular, MySetup menu.
2) I go into Clinician Setup, choose Mode, then select "CPAP" instead of "Auto" (which should be selected now?) At that point I should see the option to choose "5" for the pressure?

Never mind these questions. I found both settings in the Provider menu area.

You can actually stay on Auto mode and just set minimum and maximum the same.  After looking at your summary data, I think turning off Flex looks good, and I still think your pressure will end up at 5 or 6 cm.  A number of people find fixed pressure less disruptive, so no changes in my previous suggestion. Our main objective is comfort and trying to build on longer therapy time with fewer arousals.   Good luck and sleep well.
