[Pressure] Changed pressure setting
It's hard to argue with the OP's success, even though most of us would have made smaller pressure adjustments to get to where he got. He happened to luck out with his decisions.

But don't you think the sleep doctors don't luck out too, with their recommendations? Sure, they are bit more educated with the sleep lab data to be make better guestimates as to what pressures we need, but there still is a chance those recommended pressures won't work at home, particularly since they can't know our individual tolerance levels for air blowing into our airways.

At first I was under the impression that when in the "VAuto" mode the machine would adjust the pressure settings as needed. Reason for changing the settings was I was waking up very bloated and not very refreshed. Today, I woke up a little better than the previous weeks. Here are my "95% Percentile" results after changing my Max. pressure settings from IPAP 22/EPAP 14 to IPAP 12/EPAP 6.

IPAP 17.0 down to 10.4
EPAP 14.0 down to 7.5
Leak 33.6 down to 13.2 (Using nasal pillow):
Tidal Volume 720 down to 600
Minute Ventilation 8.4 down to 7.8
Respiratory Rate 15 up to 18
AHI & AI Events/hr .1 up to .5
I:E Ratio 2:1 down to 1.61:1

Any input on these numbers would be greatly appreciated.

I need to turn off the automated shut off feature that my vpap auto 25 has. It shuts down if it feels there is a leak in the mask which wakes me up. Can any body help
