RE: Large Leaks
Yes Sir, Looks just like that. I'm stumped. I don't think I have any of those events, but I would like to be sure. I tried purging data etc. Unless anyone can come up with a way to show it, I can live without it.

Thanks for the effort.

RE: Large Leaks
Since it is the perfect message title I thought I would add my SleepyHead Leak Rate graph on as well. Could someone look at my graph and see if this looks mostly like a mouth leak which is what I think it is. This evening I'll try a new chinstrap. My pressure is a constant 10.

thanks, David

Looks like a mouth leak to me. Good luck with the chin strap.

RE: Large Leaks
A chin strap worked wonders for me, Good Luck. Small investment to find out!Dancing

You also can right click on the "leak Rate" and a menu flies out, select "CPAP Overlays, then check box "Large Leaks" to grey out the parts that are over the limit.
2nd, right click again, select menu "dotted Lines" and check "95% leak rate" and "leak rate upper threshold". It helps you see exactly where you are on the scale.

Help a newb to understand how to read a wave form on a graph to help determine what the problem is. For example, what is telling you that it is probably a mouth leak? I'm trying to catch up but I'm still reading info side by side with my software to try it as I go along. Helps me remember what things do what.

RE: Large Leaks
Mouth Leaks - More boxy, less spikey and longer duration. That is my understanding.

On a side note, I had a VERY GOOD night!

RE: Large Leaks
I've been here since 2001 and been through a couple of hurricanes. I was here for Charley, Jeanne, Ivan, Wilma. I'm sorry to the general public but I have to laugh at the level of panic they pushed on the public over Erika.
