Leak numbers
#1
Leak numbers
I think my numbers are good:
AI.                      1.O
TOTAL AHI.      0.3
CA.                     0.1

So how concerned should I be with leak numbers around 70 ?  Thanks, Tom

RE: Leak numbers
I don’t know what your leaks look like. You need to post a nights OSCAR charts to see what is happening. But just generically if leaks are bad your numbers are not Reliable.

RE: Leak numbers
I'd agree with Stacey. The therapy numbers shouldn't be relied upon with an out of control leak rate. Do put an OSCAR chart up and review the mask primer.

RE: Leak numbers
OSCAR is a free report tool that you put on your PC. You'd have to use an SD card in your PAP machine to save detailed data and upload that data into OSCAR.

I'm not sure which AirSense 10 you have, but if I've got it right, the AirSense Elite and AutoSet are compatible with OSCAR.
