RE: Help!
contact the local hospital, you may need a referral from the GP to outpatients. Everything is free, the sleep doctors, the sleep tests, the machine. Worse case there is a mask and hose to buy, with a month rental first, before the free machine. I can't see vic being different to other states.

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.
