New User Seeking Advice - Thanks!

You have a PR machine which is slower to respond, it does a great job, it just responds slower.  The general goal is to narrow the pressure that it needs to respond to, thus raising the minimum. Your pressure chart looks almost like a straight CPAP at 4.5 cm with Hyponeas causing your AHI to rise.  

The goal is to raise the min and greatly reduce the Hyponeas.  Take it in smaller steps if you like, but I would definitely raise it.  If 6 totally eliminated them I would back down as slowly as I could.

It shouldn't hurt anything to bump it up to 6. That having been said I usually get a week or two of data between tweaks because each night can be so different.

For me, any setting below 10 feels like I'm starving for air but that may be because I've been over that for so long.
