How to reduce flow limitations on Dreamstation Auto CPAP?

How to reduce flow limitations on Dreamstation Auto CPAP?
Most of the advice to reduce flow limitations on CPAP seem to be for Resmed. I have UARS and have the Dreamstation CPAP Auto. How do I go about reducing FLs on my APAP? I set my min pressure to 12 and had less FLs than I did when at 8 but still had them. I seem to be waking up a lot during the night.

Unfortunately the dreamstation does not allow more than 2 EPR (flex) and it is slower to react so about the only thing you can do is raise pressure which causes other problems.

Last night my min was on 12. If I bump it to 13 or 14, what should I put my C Flex setiting as? 2?

I would go to 14 c flex at 2.  after that if you change do one per night so you can see the effect of the change.  If you do more than one it is had to tell what helped or hurt.
