excuse me, I get confused with numbers

Amara view mask vents at 12 about 35 L/m
ResMed full face mask at 12 about 41 L/m

ResMed nasal mask at 12 about 34 L/m
ResMed nasal pillows mask at 12 about 37 L/m

Maybe select mask type ... Nasal, as its the closest to Amara view vents leak rate

Amara view mask vents at 12 about 35 50 L/m

ResMed nasal mask at 12 about 34 L/m
ResMed nasal pillows mask at 12 about 37 L/m

Maybe select mask type ... Nasal, as its the closest to Amara view vents leak rate Won't work because Amara View vents at 50 LPM @ pressure =12.

Do you mind copy intentional leak rates at different pressures from the pdf, thanks

I've an old pdf download shows intentional leak rates for different masks, including Amara which shows 33 L/m at 15
Also, I find Philips Respironics pdf from Supplier #26 for Amara View, shows 38 L/m at 15

Sorry, justMongo, I'm trying to get to the bottom of it Smile

Me too. I am looking at the top vent rate graph in my post #4 that shows 50 LPM at pressure = 12.
I'll have to use some Google-fu to see if there is contrary information on the vent rate for the Amara View.
