Are leaks affecting my data and making it look better than it should be?

Are leaks affecting my data and making it look better than it should be?
Here is my data from last night.  Lowest AHI I have had so far but I am afraid my leaks are causing the data to look better than it really is....

You have a couple of periods of large leak; but, I don't think they are impacting your therapy.
You are snoring like a chainsaw.

When you get a chance, please update your profile to reflect you men/max pressure settings of 14 - 20.

although your AHI is fine. I would still lift the min, till it settles the snoring. I found or 'imagined' that when I stopped the snoring. It settled my throat. It seemed snoring caused some inflammation of the soft tissue involved.

From machine or charts for auto-cpap, set the min at 'med' median pressure, or 2cm below 90/95%. max at 20cm for now. Forum will help you fine tune settings

Thanks for the replies.  With all that snoring I am surprised the wife hasn't knocked me in the head yet.  I work on some more adjustments and see what we get
