Latest SH Chart after adding 1 LPM O2. Machine periodically quits.

Latest SH Chart after adding 1 LPM O2. Machine periodically quits.
I have added 1LPM O2 to the CPAP feed. I feel better this morning than I have in a long time. About 21:40, 22:10, 22:25, 01:45 the machine turned off. The 03:45 was a bathroom trip. I suspect that the machine could not detect the start of the inhalation. What could I change to make the machine more sensitive to the start of inhalation; or would it be best to do a manual start/stop? 

I also would like to have some suggestions on the Insp. Time. I am still maxing out on the inspiration time. This does not appear normal from other charts I have seen.

---The mask leak is terrible but will have to do until I get another mask.

I think your leaks are causing the machine to turn off.

I had not thought of that.

We would need to zoom in on the flow rate wave form to see why inspiration rate is so long. I strongly suspect it is related to leaks and the machine has no clue if you are inhaling, exhaling or leaking.
