It looks like you're doing pretty well but it would be easier to tell if you can post a daily page showing the data in the left panel with your AHI and machine data. See the links below on how to organize your charts.

At 10-16 pressure EPR 3, your AHI is about 2, with no event type over 1 per hour. Your pressure stays pretty steady and increases from time to time on obstructive events, and minor indication of flow limitations. Your use of EPR is keeping flow limitation in check, but you seem to need every bit of the EPR 3. You appear to have leaks well under control and there are no obvious problems, or changes needed based on this chart. There is a slight clustering to events, so watch out for chin-tucking if you use more than one pillow or a high head support. We can basically throw out the CA cluster as a sleep disturbance.

At this point, it looks pretty good, and if this is typical for you, I don't have changes to recommend. I'm sure there will be some suggestions for higher minimum pressure, but I don't see any need for it, but a minimum of 11/8 would match your current median pressure and might slightly reduce events. At this point, I would simply do what feels comfortable and that is probably good enough.
