Disconnecting for Bathroom Runs
RE: Disconnecting for Bathroom Runs

Last night was my first night with a new Resmed A10, (used to have a Respironics). I thought that I would mess with just taking my mask off and letting it stop on it's own. I shut it off normally when I got up in the morning.

I looked at the details on Sleepyhead this morning and saw I had 27% LL. That is massive for me. Usually below 2%, (on my old Respironics machine).

Just my observations. I will be turning it off manually from now on. Auto Off is useless.
