RERA
#1
How important is your RERA ?  The first night I used my DreamStation
I used it in cpap mode set to 14 cm . My AHI 6.55 and my RERA was 
.97  .   But I switched it to auto mode with a pressure of 10 to 18  and 
while my AHI is now  about 2  my RERA is now averaging 4.5 .   Is a RERA
that high anything to be concerned about ?  Perhaps I need to raise my
auto start pressure  ?

E.W.,
If you are experiencing alot of RERA's, the minimum pressure is too low.
Also, the pressure range you are using of 10-18 is too wide.

What is your 90% pressure?  Set your pressure range 2cm below and 2cm above that number.  Example:  If the 90% pressure reads 14, then set a range of 12-16.

RERA's are arousals that may or may not disturb sleep.  Here is an article from the Wiki.
