The CPAP always produces positive pressure. The only way you would be aware of air movement is through a leak or the mask vent. Any chance the anti-asphyxiation valve flap has gone missing in your mask?

Thanks for the suggestion. It looks like it is still there.

Are you noticing this when wearing the mask? The machine will blow at maximum volume if you are not wearing the mask.

What is the EPR setting on your machine? That will reduce pressure when you exhale. Did it get turned off?

It is also possible that the pressure sensor is bad and the machine is running wide open now. When the machine is on, what pressure does it say it is at?

Yes it happens when I wear the mask. The epr is at at 2 and the pressure is at the ramp volume of 8.6 when I wear it. I suspect that the pressure sensor may be faulty.
