[CPAP] I take my mask off every night after 1-2 hours and don't know why
RE: I take my mask off every night after 1-2 hours and don't know why
Last night I ended up wearing my mask for over 9 hours.  I'm pretty sure this is the longest I've ever worn it!  I didn't do anything specifically different than any other night.

(ResMed split this into two sessions because I slept past Noon)


Is there anything that I can learn from using the machine for a full night for probably the first time?  I think I do see some of the clusters that @Melman mentioned previously.  I also see my pressure hitting the max pressure a few times, should I increase the max further?  My leak rate is pretty low the entire time, I think I am doing better at tightening the mask correctly without it being too tight.

Two things, and they may be related.
First Clusters of obstructive events, your older posts did not have them though others have reported them to you.
Second, your flow limits 95% value is over 0.20 where we like to see it 0.10 or less. This may or may not be related to the clusters which indicate you are tucking your chin.
