RE: Resmed Auto CPAP Advise Settings ?
Your settings are Airsense 10 at 11-14 with EPR 3.0 and ramp from 4.0 over 20 minutes. Resulting events are well controlled with more CA than obstructive. I would increase ramp minimum to 6 and lower minimum pressure to 9.0 with EPR at 2 and see if that meets your objectives for sleeping through the night, fewer events and lower pressure.

The ramp is strictly a comfort feature, but delays the time for reaching therapeutic pressure. The minimum pressure setting is pretty low, and you are breathing pretty hard against it. You don't have any obstructive events, so a reduced minimum pressure should be okay, and more comfortable, but you will want to watch that it does not let more obstructive events in. Reduced EPR may reduce CA, but in combination with reduced minimum pressure will also prevent obstructive events and may reduce sleep disturbance. You can revisit the comfort issue after a few nights.
