Getting a machine advice
RE: Getting a machine advice
Flat tops on the leak chart, vs jagged peaks indicating a 'burping of the seal. Also look at the detailed flow rate. In general the area above zero line should equal that below the line. If below the line is less it usually indicates mouth breathing

Getting a lot of large leaks the last few nights.  Nothing has really changed that I know of.  (Same mask, same setup, etc.)

Any idea what is causing the leaks or recommendations to try?  Been using the mask for about 1.5 months now.  I gave the whole setup a really good cleaning yesterday to see if that would help, it didn't.

I think your jaw is relaxing and allowing some mouth leaks.

RE: Getting a machine advice
   

Have not been on here in a while.  My nights have 'leveled' out and attached is a 'typical' night.  Majority CAs, every once in a while sprinkle in a Hypopnea but definitely 95+% CAs on most nights.  But my numbers are pretty consistently below 5 and usually settle right around 4 on average.  I am still waiting on a ASV sleep study to hopefully get on an ASV machine (date keeps getting pushed back because of COVID supposed to be next week if they will allow it).  I just want to touch base with the experts on here to see if they think that would help me out now that my numbers are consistently below 5.  When i first started CPAP they were all over the place and much higher a lot of nights.  

I am still very tired during the day and definitely do not feel 'refreshed' at all when i wake up in the morning.

Thanks,

Your numbers are as good as they are going to get on this machine.
You are waiting on an ASV titration, that's good.
