I would suggest you download Sleepyhead (free), so you can determine what pressure you need. There is not much wrong with a fixed pressure machine, as long as you can get the pressure right.

Right now you have a fixed pressure machine or you have an auto pressure machine which does not react properly? Which model is it? You could change the clinical settings by yourself.

In my opinion, therapist in sleep clinics also only read previous data and based on their extensive experience, they might be able to find quicker the right settings. However, doing an iterative process you might find the right settings for your as well; it just takes a bit longer.
