Help With Leak Data
I changed masks from a Dreamwear to a Opus 360.  I know the leaks have improved but not able to interpret the date can someone translate the leak data?

I guess what I'm asking is what is:
Large Leak %
Leak Rate MIN Med 95% Max
Total Leaks MIN Med 95% Max

Look at the first chart. You are in large leak 12.24% of the time on the machine.
Then look at the leak graph -- the lower line is important as it is the unintended leak rate.
You'll see time slots where the leak graph is gray. That carries over to your flow rate graph with shading.

May 3rd was a bad night. May 4th, much better in terms of leaks.

min, median, 95% and max are statistical terms. Min and Max are obvious. Median means half the time the the data was below the value; and half the time it was at or above the value. Quiz: Apply that to 95%.
