RE: Newbie - how long before tiredness goes?
Like other's said it depends on the person. I was a lucky one and the day after my first night I felt better than I've ever have. It's been two weeks and I have more energy than I can ever remember having in life.

From the last download the lady gave me when I returned my loan machine, the seems to be from 6.5 to 12 so might try to set the machine to that reading and try and see how I go...

You probably should leave the machine at the 6-16 cm H2O setting and not try to set it to the 6.5-12 your last readings showed. You always want to leave a few CM H20 headroom so the machine can crank it up higher if you have a particularly difficult event and it needs that extra pressure to break it. It will not go higher than the lowest pressure needed to resolve and AHI event in any case, assuming it is functioning correctly.

I am not a data junkie and only check data every month or two or four, maybe more frequently if I think I am having problems, but I don't think I've ever seen my machine go above 13, usually an occasional 12, but I leave the top of the range at 15 cm.
