Your chart looks pretty much like mine. The spikes indicate that pressure support has been cranked up to compensate for a reduction in your own breathing effort. If you zoom in, you'll probably see that if the flow rate reduces even slightly the machine will increase pressure support to try and maintain a fairly constant rate of ventilation. It responds very quickly - it really is a "breath by breath" response.
