Flow limitation -- something to worry about my values?

Flow limitation -- something to worry about my values?
Dear hose addicts,

my flow limitations are consistently at Min = 0, Med = 0, 95% = 0.1 and Max = 0.2.  I do not worry about these values.  Should I?

No, nothing to worry about.
Look at your FL graph. The range is from 0 to 1, with 1 being the worse. You are at the low end.

Do you have RERAs showing on your daily charts? If not then no, if so then maybe depending on the frequency of occurance
