We need a zoom of the flow rate during a period of high respiration rate.

Here's a zoom-in showing resp and flow rates; let me know if you'd like to see a different view, not sure if I did this right.

Zoom in a bit more: From 6:39 to 6:41. There seem to be severe flow limitations, not detected by the machine.

Hmm you're running a marathon there I guess. 50 on the breath rate... Real or Memorex? Dunno.

That last screenshot was from a week ago...I've since increased my pressure, and also just replaced the elbow that connects to my F20 mask, which I think was causing problems...it contains two valves.

Will post a new screenshot tomorrow, now that things should be in better order.

The anti-asphyxiation valve flaps. Sometimes they might get stuck or make noise, but are necessary in full face masks.

Right, I replaced that elbow because it was old and trying to troubleshoot my leaks. So far new elbow seems to be working better.

I'd like to get some current close zooms of the respiration rate. Still trying to figure that one out.

Now that's a strange riddle ...  Non detected flow limitation look like this:

   

They are misinterpreted as an additional breathe.  But your flow looks somewhat different.  At the moment I have moo clue.
