AHI of over 20, but no large leaks: what's going on??

I am suspicious that the machine is no longer functioning properly.

Can you make an appointment with a sleep clinic that can evaluate your data and check your machine.

This is definitely a situation where you want to consult with qualified professionals.

the machine is set at 10/6, it's not able to do anything else, the pressure graph shows that it's doing 10/6, what do you believe is it's failure?

Yes, having a DME provider check the machine right away may save time, since the doctor might also want to have that done.

(Personally, I do not see anything in the data which suggests to me that the machine is not functioning as designed.)

Has the air filter been replaced since April? (I change my filter monthly, but I use the hypoallergenic filter which needs to be changed more often than the standard S9 air filter which ResMed says should be changed at least every 6 months.)

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

It's the sudden change in long-term trends. It's working well consistently for months. Then one day it stops working well and continues not working well for weeks.
