RE: CPAP TO BIPAP TO ASV
so to gauge the volume of air vented by the mask I should wear the mask & immerse my face in a bucket of water? :-)

Yes! Please. Thanks

The real question is, how deep can you go?

I figured there was a better way as in having hose at the bottom and going up.
Now the question of having the mask on. Is this a new mask leak test? I volunteer...somebody else.

Here's a mask for ya to try

 Thanks again for everyones help. Such a journey. It took a year and a half to get here. 
Slept very well last night and up rested. Not fighting the sleep demons that disturb every breath. I can see and feel the job this machine is doing keeping me on an even, smooth, eventless night. And I think it will just keep getting even better, if that's even possible. Not the machine, but my response to it. Relax and enjoy the night. I wish that for all .

One more Question. This might be for Bonjour rocking that beard. I had a beard, cut it off to accommodate mask leaks. Nasal masks haven't worked. Mouth blowout, and nose leaks. Bonjour mentioned he uses a hybrid mask. Cant tell from the pics what it is.
