You might want to go into SleepyHead and turn on the display of CPAP events on the Leak Rate graph to see how the leaks match up with apnea events. (Hold your cursor over the Y-Axis values on the leaks graph and right-click and you'll see a menu come up.)Hi green wings. I did as you instructed. It seems some of the clusters of events are accompanied by rising pressure. At least in my view.
I'm never sure how correct the leak values are when they show up at the same time as an apnea event. Maybe someone else will have an answer for that.
Did you notice any leaks while you were sleeping or wake up with a dry mouth?
P.S. You probably already know, but those spikes in your pressure graph are the Respironics "Search" routine.
I don't have dry mouth, but I do feel the ocassional leaky breeze when it begins striking my nose or my chin.
The pressure is rising in response to the the events.
Your leak is fine with either mask .
IMO your min pressure is too low.
From the graphs id start nudging it up .5 at a time, though im guessing youll settle on 11ish to get your ahi down.
When pressue goes up a masks vent rate goes up with it btw which raises the total leak, which with your machine is all you need watch leakwise.
