[Health] Still Sleepy
#31
Thanks for all the info, it helps me a lot. I realize that my hands are tied to a large degree by not being able to see data other than the LCD screen, but it is what it is for now. I've a new mask coming shortly which will hopefully lower my leak rates. Last night's leak rate was 0.60L/s. Which is in line with the numbers I was seeing just sitting with the mask on, watching my current leak rate.

The phrase "leak rate at 20% pressure of the mask" makes no sense. Pressure is measured in cm H2O.

Leak Rate is measured in L/min or L/sec.

What are you measuring 20% of????

Hi Peter
If my math correct ... 0.60 L/s = 36 L/m
Last night my 95% leak was 28.8 L/m and maximum 43.2 L/m
Checking ResScan leak graph, most of the night leak line was at the lower end and few spikes here and there
The spikes indicate mouth breathing even with chinstrap, I did wake up with slightly dry mouth but don,t believe the night was compromised due to the median leak being low at 2.4 L/m

New mask should arrive today. Last night's leak rate was 0.56L/s. Consistent, but too high it appears. Hopefully the new mask will drop it.
