Intentional leak rates for Respironics masks

Intentional leak rates for Respironics masks
(copied from old forum)

Intentional leak rates for masks and exhalation ports

Philips Respironics sleep therapy devices report and/or display total leak rates.
Total leak = intentional leak plus unintentional leak
This chart provides the intentional leak rates of our mask exhalation ports at various pressure settings.
Unintentional leak = total leak minus intentional leak (from mouth, mask, etc.)

RE: Intentional leak rates for Respironics masks
For Respironic's users; Encore Pro 2 can report the leak as "unintentional" or "total". The setting, among a myriad of other settings, can be chosen under "Patient Settings" tab.
The default is "total".
