The auto mode means it is automatically adjusting all the time, every night, all night. No two nights are the same anyway. The treatment range is set with a minimum and a maximum and the machine stays within that range. As you sleep, and as events happen, the machine adjusts.

If your machine is saying it has 8.5 for all 3 readings, then somehow it got turned back to regular CPAP mode.

In "Auto-trial" the machine act as auto in 30 days, then it go to cpap-mode.
