LEAKAGE - What's the issue?
I'm trialing a Sleepweaver Anew cloth full face fabric mask. It is much much more comfortable than my plastic RESMED one but my leakage went up from below 3 lt/min to over 23 on the first night.

Funny thing was all other stats seemed to stay the same.

Q. What issues does a leaking mask cause?

The machine report 95th percentile leak ... leak was at or below that number for 95% of the night, not all night long

ResMed tells us, 24 L/m is acceptable and does not interfere with the machine function or data reporting

Higher leak rate (above red line in ResScan leak graph) can affect the accuracy of the data, and the machine cannot distinguish apnea type correctly and score apnea as "unknown", yellow symbol in ResScan

The numbers don't tell you the full story, you'll need the software

As a newbee here, I am trying to learn and adsorb as much as possible. Taking one day and one step at a time. Zonk, you say the numbers don't tell the full story, and "you'll need the software. I downloaded ResScan is there more software needed? thanks

I recommend SleepyHead over Rescan. I had both on my computer for several months and then I just got rid of Rescan. I can find out lots more with less effort in SleepHead.
