During the time that you are having this problem, expand your flow rate graph and look at the downhill side of the inhalation portions of your curve. Look to see if there is a little hitch in this section where it stops descending or starts a small ascent for a very short period of time. Let me know what you see.

The graph shows that after the curve hits bottom it goes up about half way and then goes sideways a bit and then continues to go upwards.

Daniel

Actually the area that I was referring to was the descending portion that is above the zero line. Is there a "hitch" in that area or does it progress smoothly down below the zero line?

Best Regards,

PaytonA

Apparently it is not quite the same problem that I had with my S8 bilevel so I am not sure that I have anything germane to your problem although the results seem very similar.
