Do I still meet the 4 hour a night compliance if my mask leaks?

Just wondering.

Yes. All they care about is time + days used per month. Although to be frank, it doesn't do much for your health to meet those requirements as they are bare minimums, and you need to be asleep.

I cannot sleep though. I'm going to try zzzquil tonight. Now I'm going to work with NO sleep at all. Yea, the CPAP will make you feel so much better the doctor said. I'm beginning to think it's a money racket.

UKwildcatfan,
You have started 6+ threads in a short period of time asking the same questions.  

You have received alot of very good advice from the folk here, and I haven't seen any evidence of you acting on any of the advice you have received.  

You (against all advice from the knowledgeable folk here) have ended up with a brick.  It is what it is!
Now it's time to get serious with your treatment!

Get the manual:

Fill out your profile!

Try to use this machine, not just for DOT compliance, but to help with your apnea.  

Unfortunately,  since you have a brick, you will have to go by how you feel.  Lower the pressure if it will help, at least until you can get used to it.  

Now for anyone that thinks I'm being harsh, go to his profile and read the threads he has started and the advice he has already received.

An Admin should just lock this thread then. 

Rose.. you have summed it up, and given relevant links.. so no one needs to add to this particular thread I would think. 
Unsure
