Exhalation port- can it make higher leak numbers?
Exhalation port- can it make higher leak numbers?
Hi ya'll,
Is it possible any percentage or amount of leak number different with the Nuance I used last night, over the p10 I usually use, could be from the way or amount the Nuance blows out of it's exhalation port?

Google the Vent rate for Nuance mask. The P10's venting rate is 20L/min at 4cm and goes up from there. Nuance may have a bit higher vent rate given that its rated from 3cm-20cm pressure and P10 is from 4cm-20cm pressure.
PRS1 Auto & Dreamstation Auto w/ P10 and straight pressure of 7cm.

It is doubtful that the vent area will effect the leak data on Resmed machines and I would presume on PR machines as well.
