First try at posting SleepyHead data
Got the new DreamStation a few days ago and have been working through guides for posting so here goes. This was a purchase out of pocket and so far I really wish I had gone ahead and done this a long time ago. The data shown here is from my seventh night with the DreamStation, AHI looks great but puzzled over leaks. Also, as others have posted with the same machine, I do not find a Flow Limitations chart other than what shows in the pie chart. If the data shows properly I welcome any and all comments. With the brick that I was using previously my AHI was below 5 most of the time but there were some lengthy OAs.

Looks great! You have a very low event rate, and other than a few leaks and some RERA, it's just excellent. Flow limitations for a Dreamstationa are events, not a chart, and you can see how they increased PS and EPAP. Nicely done on the chart, although you should turn off the pie chart in File/Preferences/Appearance. Leaks look to be nearly constant, with some getting into large leak territory. Check out Fred's mask primer in my signature for some ideas. Mask leaks tend to be something you just have to work through.

How do you feel?

Thanks Sleeprider for the input and also for guiding me to the right machine at the right price. I feel good and I am sleeping much better with the DreamStation. Today I re-routed my hose which should be more comfortable. Now, if my hip didn't hurt when I go to bed it would be even better. More later but thanks again.

Just a thought. I also use a full face mask and when I see leaks that large that appear abruptly it is because of my jaw dropping to the point that the seal at the bottom of the mask leaks. I now use a $10 chin strap and have eliminated such leaks.
