RE: Breathing problems - Large Leak? 76%?
How did you feel, good or bad comfort? Leaks seems better, but the 95% stat says this was near 21. The 95% is where it was equal to our less than 95% of the time. It's ok but barely. ResMed's machines redline leaks at 24 just 3 more than your 95%. Median and minimum were a lot better. The Max leak was high, but seeing the leak chart, it wasn't but a brief amount.

I mention the leaks because they may not directly interfere with therapy, but they may cause sleep disturbance.

Sleep was a bit troubled, but hard to tell since I have some knee problems that hurt. Getting them fixed in about a week.

However, I felt very good today! Realized I was not drifting off nor yawning as before. I feel like I am getting better sleep than before.

Not sure what I should do next.

Your great advice really helped me!!

Such large leaks over 60 % can cause open mouth too. That was reason in my case with ResMed P30i mask. I bought chin strap and the leaks decreased really a lot. Some nights I have quite big leaks and I try next full face mask.

Dave, any suggestions? Your help made me feel better, but is there any more I should try?

I may try a full face mask tonight.
