Is my Cpap Not working correclty?

Is my Cpap Not working correclty?
I have a resmed air sense 10.

I've used both a full mask and no only.

Air only blows in when my when I breath in.  If I'm not taking a breath the air has little to no pressure.

Is this normal?

RE: Is my Cpap Not working correclty?
The CPAP does exactly what the name says. It maintains constant pressure. Flow is only provided for respiration and leaks (intentional and non-intentional). If you pull the mask away from your face, there will be a rush of flow as the machine attempts to maintain pressure. I may seem like there is no flow but your full face mask flows nearly 30 L/min, even with a good fit.
