yep. I would wait until you have about 2 weeks under the first settings. Then take the result and use that to change the range. Then -
If you have a median of 10.8 cm throughout that week, I would gradually change the min pressure to 10. If sleepyhead shows that you are up against the 15 (like 14.5 and above) a lot, then adjust the max up.
A good rule of thumb:
adjusting max - adjust by 2 cm at a time, no need to wait long for additional raise.
adjusting min - adjust no more than 1 cm at a time, and wait at least 4 days before next raise.
Since you probably will be at 10 min 17 max, you'll do therapy at current settings until March 9.
Mar 9 change from 7-15 to 8-17
Mar 13 change from 8-17 to 9-17
Mar 17 change from 9-17 to 10-17, or 10-19.
Wait a couple weeks after that, and check your progress.

Thanks for the tips guys! So far I'm loving the MyAir site as it gives me quick visibility of my CPAP compliance. I'm totally amazed with the SleepyHead software. It's quite advanced and free to boot! I'll keep my settings where they are for now as I'll be going away on vacation soon so won't have time to monitor my progress.
