Help with understanding "Leak Rate"
#1
Need input on a problem I'm having with leak rate. I use the P10 nasal pillows (Sleeprider was right, resistance was futile), a chin strap, and I tape my mouth so no air can escape. Never have a problem with dry mouth. Although my leak rate is under the 24 L/min that is recommended it seems to get close to that on many nights. I've also noticed in my charts that during the first 1-1.5 hours or sleep I don't have any leaks and if I wake during the night for a pit stop when I go back to sleep for the first 1-1.5 hour it's all good again. I normally sleep on my back but I'm wondering if I happen to roll to my side, if that could be when the leaks start. Hose management is great and it never pulls on the mask and the large pillows seem to fit just right. Wondering if anyone can see anything in my charts that might give a hint as to what's happening.
