New to CPAP need a bit of help

RE: New to CPAP need a bit of help
This looks like effective therapy for a Philips DS CPAP. It's rare to see people regularly score less than 1 AHI on these, and the real question becomes your comfort and sleep quality. I think you would have consistently better numbers on a Resmed, but it's going to be hard to argue it is medically necessary. Nice work targeting that minimum pressure.

RE: New to CPAP need a bit of help
I would use
Min EPAP =4
Max IPAP=12
PS=4
To match the pressure settings of your PR then the standard initial PS of 4 reevaluate after 1 night

The defaults. Is this a used machine? If so start with a factory reset to reset all settings to initial factory values.
Also set date and time. As a rule you won't change these even for dst

RE: New to CPAP need a bit of help
I have a bit different take based on what we worked on before, and would like to move into pressure support a little more gradually.  My recommendation is Vauto mode,EPAP min of 7.0, PS 3.0 and maximum pressure at 16.0.  I know you responded better as we moved CPAP towards 8.5 and had residual hypopnea, flow limitation and RERA.  I think starting at EPAP 7,0 will keep the gains you got from higher CPAP pressure, and using PS of 3.0 will let you ease into bilevel.  After seeing these settings, we should see if adding PS to 4.0 will be useful or not.  As shown in the post below, you had good control over obstruction at CPAP 7.0.  If you feel the pressure is too high starting at 10/7 (IPAP/EPAP), then feel free to back off EPAP min to where you are comfortable.
