RE: Flow limitation Data
You need to post an OSCAR screenshot of your Daily screen, using F12 (Fn+F12 for a Mac).  Without any supporting data, there isn't anything to base an opinion on.

I see you have several threads dealing with your therapy.  Please try and keep them in one thread, so others can see your therapy history.  
If you wish and along with your help, I will be glad to merge your existing threads that are pertinent to your treatment into one thread.  Please send me a PM listing the thread titles that you feel are directly related to your therapy.   I will rename the title to a more appropriate title also.
- Red

EDIT:
Here are 6 threads in the same forum that seem to focus on your therapy.  Please advise if more should be included or any of these removed.
  1. Full face mask leak in bearded individual
  2. are leaks a problem?
  3. large leak but low AHI
  4. Rainout heated humidified tube
  5. C Stokes Resp

RE: Flow limitation Data
Maximize EPR at 3. If that doesn't work, then the Autoset does not have enough pressure support to treat your flow limitation, however positional issues may also play a role.
