Major leak issue, and anything else?
Hi,
New to the board and to viewing my data.

I clearly have a major leak issue.

Any other thoughts or do I need to fix the leak issue to go any further?

Use ResMed Quattro full face mask.

Thanks

RE: Major leak issue, and anything else?
Your numbers look pretty dang good. The machine is working and the therapy is working. Yep focus on the leaks, don't assume that tighter straps is the best way to fix leaks. Leaks are cause by a failure of the silicon gasket and your face area, skin oils, sometimes the mask is too tight and not letting the silicon gasket inflate, sometimes it's sleeping position with respect to your pillow.

doing well from what I can see, how are you feeling? rested? .....
