[CPAP] Reading Results from machine
#1
Hello,

I am new to the site and NEW to CPAP. So i have have plently of Q's but i will start slow. First. Great site. Learning alot here and Thanks.

I have had my machine for about a week now and have been looking at the data on withe Software. I am interested in making sure i am not LEAKING alot. I was wondering how to interpret the graph from the ResScan Software to see if i am leaking alot or averaage.
I have done a couple of searches on the site and seem to remember somone reading the results for someone.
Help if you can. Thanks a bunch.

welcome to the forum - you want leak to be below the red line on the leak graph ... 24 L/min
the S9 calculate unintentional leak = total leak less mask CO2 washout (you have to set the mask type)
here is "ResScan Report Interpretation Guide"
