If you had high blood pressure, your doctor would say "Take this medication and keep your blood pressure under 110 over 80". And that's your goal, to keep it under that. The doctor would not say "And keep your blood pressure as close to 100 over 72" because that's just silly. Sure, you can try and you can probably reach that goal but is it worth it? Probably not.
Keep the AHI under 5 and make sure you are getting good sleep. Get those two and you're good.
If you want to tweak with settings and the like to get it lower, go for it. But not if it means tightening the mask like that. That goes against the "getting good sleep" part.
