From machine or charts for auto-cpap, set the min 1cm below median pressure, or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

RE: Reference to a good sleep doctor / clinic in Melbourne, Australia
Hi Ashish

I had my sleep study done here in the Latrobe Valley (2 hours drive east of Melbourne) by a.Prof Anthony C. Sasse. He also has two other sleep clinics in Melbourne at Dandenong and Knox Hospital. Cost was $200 AUD - after Medicare rebate total cost to me was $70. He has a website -  I am unsure as to whether a link is permitted, so have not done so. Can't really say if he's "good" but he suffers from sleep apnea and is extremely knowledgeable and not "pushy" - no other choice for me out here in the sticks. You will need a referral, and usually need to pay upfront.

This is my 4th week of a home trial of the F & P Icon+ and the Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset and 3 different masks (one nasal, 2 full face). Still tired and still poor sleep, and have extreme difficulty using them for more than a few hours overnight Bug-eyed

I have an apppointment with the above sleep doctor tomorrow where he will analyse all the data provided by the two devices. I have uploaded two recent Sleepyhead screenshots from them in my other post on here.

Hope this is of some help!
