Sometimes lowering the maximum pressure can help reducing the number of central events if they are pressure induced but not sure it help if those events are occurring closer to to the minimum pressure. Hours of sleep, sleeping right through and how long you stay awake in bed are important - for example if you,re sleeping 2 hours with the machine and AHI 40 might not be bad if you were sleeping 8 hours with the machine.
EPR is comfort feature which some people use and some don,t
Try to experiment with it and see if one setting or turned off can make any difference.

The RT's and the sleep Dr. have all basicly prescribed or said the same thing, at least within a point or two. Those point or two pressure differences are NOT going to make much of a difference to you. From what I can pull out of your original post, you did not have an overwhelming number of apneas during your sleep test.

I would suggest that you place the machine in the auto mode of 6-11 and let it ride for at least two weeks. Thats a minimum. If the APAP is uncomfortable for you, then chose steady CPAP at a pressure of 8 and leave it there for at least two weeks. You arn't going to die from apnea within that two week period, even if the AHI/OA/CA numbers seem to be overly high to you. During the two week span, up-load your data daily to sleephead and learn how to decipher the information. THen after two weeks or longer, you can make a more definitive determination as to what changes might be necessary

Your apnea didn't develope overnight and neither will the CPAP therapy make a change in your life overnight. But its a beginning!!! Hang tough and things will even out.
Yesterday is history; Tomorrow is a mystery; Today is a gift; Thats why its called "The Present".
