I have been looking for some kind of guide to the graphs, particularly the flow one, but continually come up empty handed. I'd love to see a series of graphs with different events marked and labeled, but it just doesn't seem to be out there. If you or anyone else knows where to find that, please let me know!
I have a mustache/goatee/beard and am using a ResMed Mirage FX, size small. I was initially given a regular size wide version of the mask but it was too big and caused pressure marks on my nose. I'm happy with what I have now.

Looking at the graph summary data on leaks and not quite understanding what is acceptable made me do some Googling and saw the thing about striving for <5 on AHI. Plus I just changed from the ResMed Quattro to a ResMed Quattro Air full face mask and was curious if things were good with this mask.I was concerned about the leak data shown in the summary graphs and that is what led me to researching what was acceptable.
Using Resmed Quattro Air full face mask
Over the past 14 days,
Median daily usage: 7.49
Average daily usage: 7.27.
95th percentile: 25.8,
AHI average for the 14 day period is .2.
Previous 14 day period with ResMed Quattro full face mask
Median daily usage: 7.45
Average daily Usage: 8.15
95th Percentile: 10.8
for this 2 week period: .1
Any input on how my therapy numbers look and suggestions for masks that work well with a full beard would be appreciated. FWIW, I have tried the nasal pillows but do not like the chin strap I have to wear when using them.
Thanks in advance.
