Leak Graph Interpretation
#11
I went back to a newer mask of the same type went from APAP back to my prescribed BPAP. The leak graph was similar to what it has been except again the whole graph shifted downward a little and I actually had some occasions of 0 leak. I am getting concerned because I am getting a lot of hypopneas and if I remember last night my AHI was 9 point something. All hypopneas except for 1 apnea for the night.

I am going to a new DME today to hopefully get fitted for a new mask. I have decided to try a full face mask to see if I can't make one work.

Thanks for the help and advice. I have done some of the reading assignment but have not finished yet. Very interesting! Like I said, I do not mouth breathe at all that I know of except when winded. I am beginning to wonder (like Zonk indicated) if something during my sleep is triggering me to mouth breathe
