How to view leak stats?
I don't see my leak stats, what am I missing here?

I am using ResScan (thanks for that by the way!) and under options>summary graph range, I see "leak" with the ranges fields set at 0-40

Thanks, Bob

Not sure this is the issue, but make sure you have "ALL DATA" selected, as described in this post:

RE: How to view leak stats?
RJ--
As already mentioned, make sure you have ALL DATA selected. You might also download the Sleepyhead software (it's free). While it shows the same basic data, I like the way it displays better.
You show your equipment as ResMed s9, but which type of s9: AutoSet, Elite, Escape, Escape Auto?
Some machines are not data capable.
Each mask has a certain intentional leak rate..that's EXTRA air being pumped in that they PLAN on going out the ports to take the CO2 out with it. (That's why, on the ResMed, you tell it what type of mask you are using.)
The ResMed will deduct the intentional leak from the total leak and the final graph will only show excess.
Google Sleepyhead Software. Once you have it downloaded, see if you don't like it better than ResScan. It CERTAINLY shows leaks...but as with the ResScan, be sure you are choosing to include ALL DATA and high resolution graphs.

Next to stop/start button shows the model name
As you,re using auto range setting ... your S9 either AutoSet or Escape Auto
AutoSet full data capable machine ... Escape Auto is not (no leak data or AHI breakdown of apnea events)

[If yours is "AutoSet" version, make sure sleep quality set to on otherwise if set to usage ... no efficacy data]

RE: How to view leak stats?
Mine is an Escape Auto EPR so that explains the no leak data! I am going to take a look at the SleepyHead software regardless. I'm new to all of this - started on Jan 23d - and have learned a good bit from this board so thanks to all the posters.

I'm trying to get my head around the inconsistent API numbers which have ranged from 10 to 1.9. I think some of it is just caused by inconsistent sleep hygiene but what I do know is the days that I'm ~2.0 I feel much better than those 4+ days.

Thanks again - sleep tight.

Escape Auto does not store any efficacy data or high resolution data on the SD card
See "Specifications" for comparison: http://www.resmed.com/us/products/s9_ser...nc=dealers
Also no mask fit feature, no central apnea detection or enhanced autoset ... so basically its an enhanced brick but still a brick

Your supplier stuffed up and gave the cheaper one just to make few more dollars
Talk to them and your doctor to have the machine replaced with the AutoSet
Don,t get stuck with this machine for the next 5 years, some members end up buying AutoSet out of pockets

RE: How to view leak stats?
Yep, your DME supplier stuck you with a low-end "dumb brick" instead of a fully-data-capable CPAP machine. I'd take it back and demand the AutoSet or at least the S9 Elite which offers data capability.

See Archangle's article on CPAP choices and recommendations, here on our wiki:

RE: How to view leak stats?
Question about the link indicator on the S9 - Elite My leak number is around 10L/min to 12L/min I use the ResMed Mirage FX which seems very comfortable and does not seem to leak as bad as my old mask. Are these numbers in the normal range? Cant seem to find any data on what the numbers should be. My AHI has been ranging from .3 to .7 max which seems really good and i do always get the SHa_biggrin5
