Need advice with AirCurve 10 VAuto settings

Need advice with AirCurve 10 VAuto settings
Switched from PR 560 Auto to ResMed VAuto earlier this year.  Have been tweaking settings, but feel like it could be better.
I sleep more sound using this machine compared to the Respironics, but would like to clean up some of the Obstructives.
Last night was the first time using an overnight Oximeter.

Any suggestions?

Rose, congrats on the Vauto. Your results are pretty good and there is no flow limit, so I think you have PS correct. I think an EPAP min in the range of 8.0 to 8.4 is going to resolve the OA. Your current chart show those events arise at or near your minimum pressure, and the history of setting changes sow best results were at EPAP 8.4. You have done a good job optioning and just a but mor minimum pressure should do the trick.
