I’d find that to be torture, personally. I find that any pressure below around 12 feels like it’s harder to breath than without wearing at all. It isn’t - it just feels that the flow doesn’t instantly adjust, so it kinda feels like you’re breathing through a straw.

(FWIW, on therapy for a bit over 7 years now, using an auto set pressure of 17-20. 20 is the highest my machine goes… actual peak pressure used most nights is around 19-19.2. AHI of <1 most nights, even “bad” nights are 1.5-2ish. I treated I was somewhere in the mid 50s, well into “severe”.
