Your machine may not be working properly, it can happen. We just had a patient come in today, with a pressure of 14 and his CPAP was only blowing 11.4 and he was snoring and feeling like "crap" (his words). Ask your DME to check your machine with a digital manometer.
Personally I would rather see a water gauge as it self calibrates but point well taken.
