RE: Feedback Request for Sleepyhead Results

These are low consequence and there is not really any good explanation or certain cause for them. Both of the events you imaged are preceded by a large inhale, and this suggests movement or arousal.  The Philips machine is continuing to improperly time IPAP trigger resulting in those bumps during what should be exhale.  This is an example of where the Resmed has the advantage with a "trigger sensitivity" setting.

Let's not rush into changes, but it looks like you may do just fine with a lower pressure setting of 9.0 EPAP, 13.0 IPAP if obstructive apnea remains low, and a lower setting is not out of the question.

My heart got warm with excitement when I read your post. I am going to try to settle in a little more with the new gear I'm using. Then after a few more days of results, I may just do that; a small incremental lowering of the pressure. Leaks really annoy me still and hopefully that will alleviate that somewhat.

Thanks for the feedback!
