Leak and other assessment

Leak and other assessment
Hi

Recently, I changed my pressure to 17+ . It has been pretty good with my AHIs. Almost zero.
I was feeling very refreshed as well. However, last couple of days  feeling a bit tired. Not sure why.
I am on Airsense 10, Resmed N20 Nasal mask.
I have been mouth taping using medvance tape and also using the Seatec chin strap. 

I would like advice on the following:
1. The leaks from yesterday. I believe there are mouth open leaks after about 4AM. Is that correct ? 
What are the leak types here in the screen shot ? 
2.  Is using Seatec chin strap causing any issues ?

I seem to have mild aerophalgia (no burping etc, but some stomach pain). Any thoughts on addressing it ?

3. I am aiming for zero AHI - is that the goal ? or am I ok with a higher AHI goal (0.5 or 1?). I can reduce pressure a bit if the AHI goal is increased.
4. will full face mask help me in any way ? I have Resmed F20 e already

Your help is appreciated.

thanks

RE: Leak and other assessment
Welcome. No 0 is not the goal it is feeling well. And your settings hate quit high.

I would try lower numbers which should help with the stomach pain.

I would suggest a couple changes.

Autoset
Min 10
EPR FULL TIME 3
Leave the max where it is

See how you feel, I think it will improve how you feel.
