Help with Dialing in Resmed VPAP settings

Help with Dialing in Resmed VPAP settings
                            Like others I've switched to a new machine after the Dreammstation recall.

I would really appreciate help dialing in the setting for my new machine.

I attached a daily report.  Please let me know if I should attach the stat report.  

I do have ramp turned on for 5 mins             .

Here's my stats:

I'm wondering if I should turn down the pressure a little, but I have no issues with discomfort with the current settings.

thanks

RE: Help with Dialing in Resmed VPAP settings
I'm bumping this thread as you may receive more responses.

I don't see anything major, but you could turn down the pressure support a bit to help with the CA's.

Could you repost a recent chart using the F12 to take a screenshot of the daily page in OSCAR.

Follow the link below in my signature line on how to organize your chart and then use the attachment feature to post here.
