Alarms on Dreamstation BiPap AVAPS going off at night

Alarms on Dreamstation BiPap AVAPS going off at night
I have a Dreamstation BiPap AVAPS. Last night the alarms for the low minute vent and the low tidal volume continued to go off. Between the two, probably 6-8 times.

Today I feel out of breath and very tired. 

What do those alarms mean and what should I have done differently to stop them from going off?

I didn’t know if my mask wasn’t sealed right but my husband didn’t notice the sound of air leaking.

RE: Alarms on Dreamstation BiPap AVAPS going off at night
We should be able to see what's going on using OSCAR. Download the most recent version from the link at the top of the forum, then post some daily detail charts using the Standard and Advanced views from the menu. This will give us a trace of your minute vent and tidal volume, as well as the pressure response from your machine.
