Leaking But good results
Leaking But good results
If my report says my mask is leaking but I'm getting great results in terms of events events per hour should I be concerned?

RE: Leaking But good results
Yes if your getting lots of large leaks your machine will not be able to measure it’s effectiveness and may give falsely low results. Post some graphs from Seepyhead and we can truly comment

RE: Leaking But good results
With the machine you have, you need to get the leaks down.
Otherwise it can't do its job properly.
I am NOT a doctor.  I try to help, but do not take what I say as medical advice.

I am just a long term user of c.p.a.p. and therefore I have some experience in using these machines and equipment.

However, I am NOT an expert, so advice given should be taken as given in good faith only and NOT medical advice.
