What settings are you supposed to start on?

I'm sure this depends on what machine and what your doctor has pre programmed. I have a Resmed Airsense 10 with a range of 5-16 and I use the ramp setting that starts at a 4 for however long I set it for. My humidifier I set at a 5 and that seems to work for me.

Did you talk to your doctor or respiratory therapist about settings?

Yeah, there is no canned answer to your question, we can't help you. You need to have done a sleep study with CPAP Titration portion to determine what pressure settings you need. The poster above me is set for 5-16, I'm set for 10-14. Even she or I could have our settings changed if we have a significant change in our weight or due to other factors.

If you just went out and bought a CPAP machine, you're flying blind. See a sleep specialist, nobody here is going to be able to help you with settings, it's too idiosyncratic.
