Adding to what JustMongo said, I would suggest perhaps setting the machine to CPAP mode and get a baseline of data. Later, using the Autoset or Autoset for Her mode, and bracketing your CPAP pressure of 9; for example, 7 min, 12 max. Note that EPR will subtract pressure during exhale, so don't go overboard on EPR at first, or try to select too low of a minimum pressure. If using EPR of 3, then 7 may well be too low for your minimum pressure as it will produce 7/4 (IPAP/EPAP). Just use your best judgement, then watch for trends in the data.
Yes I will be in Auto mode, I have a dr. appt. where i'll be taking in my equipment then a follow up in Nov. I don't usually use the humidifier in my old Remstar Plus, will I have to use the humidifier in the new AS10 4her? I did not order the heated hose to go with it, will I need one?
Thank you for all of ya'lls replies, I am so excited to a good nights sleep.
I tried the humidifier on my resmed device. Initially found it to be ok.
After the weather started to have so much humidity, I found any amount of humidifier was to much so now I don't have the heater activated and don't put any water in the tank.
I'll see what happens when we get out of the humid months.

Since "all ya'll" is a southern expression, I'll assume you're in the southeast US.
So, you probably don't need a heated hose. You don't have too use the humidifier if you choose not to.
You can switch it off in the menu; or (in my opinion) a better choice is to get the end cap that allows the machine to work without a tank installed.
It's $15 to $20. Comes in a color to match your machine.
Just Google "ResMed Air 10 side cover"
