560 is not that far from 535. And it shows that you must be exhaling well enough to maintain more than your ideal tidal volume. So I hope that your initial concern in the first post has been addressed.

Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.
