A PS = 4 is typical start, it can always be adjusted once we see what is happening.

I can't believe I'm saying this but.... I actually got up early for once in my life LMFAO here is the data! The neck collar I used bothered my neck a little bit because of the velcro.

Looks better, although there are a few clusters. We need to start getting after the flow limitation and snore a bit better. Let's try PS 5.0. No other changes.

PS 5.0 has cut flow limitation to a 95% of 0.15, so there is still room for improvement. Assuming you are comfortable with it, increase PS to 5.4.

I will try 5.4 tonight, but it looks like i am getting much better results with the collar and the increased pressure headroom!

I think the question on whether you needed bilevel is pretty clear. Results are good, and you should follow your own instincts on whether to implement any changes and continue at current settings, if that is what seems best to you. Our goal is your comfort and a good night of sleep, and you are best judge of that.
