Ok, so my brand spanking new fraction of the Australian price Resmed S9 Autoset is winging it's way from the States as we speak. So, was wondering what pressure range should I set it to?

This is my first auto so I'm really not sure what range I should do.

My history of fixed pressure is:

started at 5, was too low, went to 13 was too high,then finally down to 11. So I was thinking of between 6 and 13?Thinking-about

Any and all advice greatly appreciated

Thanks

Weeble, try it at that and after a week or two see if you need to adjust it. If the figures look ok and you feel good just leave it

If it were me, I would try it from 10 to 14 for a few weeks, checking the data in ResScan and SleepyHead and then adjust accordingly. If the data says that you are at 13 or 14 pressure level 95% of the time, then I would adjust the pressure settings.

My set pressure initially was 12. I set my auto set from 12 to 20 to see what happened and 95% of the time, I was at 19.9. Just my opinion. Let us know how it goes.

Thanks guys, interesting theories. Will do as Tez62 suggested and try it for a week and see what happens, if it just doesn't feel right, I will try what Me50 suggests. Will post results once I get going.
