Leaks L/M
#1
If you get an L/M (leaks per min?) number, what number would be high enough to concern you? I'm registering about 5 to 7 L/M. thanks

That sounds low to me but perhaps if you can post some data from Sleepyhead software it would give everyone a more clear picture. See my signature below.

L/M is Liters per Minute.
For ResMed machines, below 24 LPM is acceptable. Might be uncomfortable because leaking air can be disturbing.
