Help with reading mask pressure/flow chart
Help with reading mask pressure/flow chart
Just when I thought I figured everything out, I get more confused with how the mask pressure and flow rate work together.

The mask pressure always looks identical to the flow rate graph so how is it useful if it is pretty much a duplication of the flow rate graph even the way that both graphs looks during arousals? How can you tell if your expiration or inspiration is being cut off prematurely by reading the mask pressure with the flow rate graph. I need a brief tutorial on this please Smile. I uploaded some screenshots of both mask pressure and flow rate.
