RE: flow limit,csas,aircurve asv
Your decision to move from ASV to the Vauto worked out great. You have achieved efficacy we rarely see with zero events, and any future changes should be made with comfort in mind. Well done.

RE: flow limit,csas,aircurve asv
After the mask leak improved, the number of apnea events became less and less, and it once dropped to zero. After waking up, I feel more relaxed, but there will still be awakening events.
From the OSCAR chart, the expiratory curve is abnormal every once in a while. What causes the abnormal expiratory curve? Is the EPAP set too large? Is there any way to improve it?
In addition, I added that I am wearing a dreamwear full-face mask and sleeping on my back. Thank you for any suggestions, thank you.

From the OSCAR chart, The exhalation waveform shows a jagged oscillation every 5-15 minutes.
What causes the abnormal expiratory curve? Is the EPAP set too large? Is there any way to improve it?
In addition, I added that I am wearing a dreamwear full-face mask and sleeping on my back.
Thank you for any suggestions.

It's not something I understand well, but it is most likely an expiratory flow limitation or snore. It seems relatively infrequent
