Yes, your Flow Limitation, vibratory snore and RERA are a little high. Raising the minimum pressure should take care of that.

You can try raising it to 8.5 and watch to see if any changes. Then if needed, raise by .5 again until you see a reduction in those events.

Since you downloaded SleepyHead, here are a couple links to help you upload a screenshot, which helps us to give advice based on your data.

RE: CPAP Is a Godsend
Thank you again for the information.

Full disclosure, I was actually told to set the machine at 8 to 16 pressure. The first night I tried it I lowered it to 6-12 and then last night I upped it to 7-14. Tonight I will stick with the original recommendation.
