I was diagnosed with an AHI of 118 (I know, right?) and started cpap on a ResMed Airsense 10 about 30 days ago. Pressure around 12. With therapy, the summary data suggests my AHI is between 1 and 3 depending on the night, and I now need 4 hours less sleep a night to feel rested! yAy!
My only complaint is with my mask. I use a whisper nose mask. I have a large skull, so my gear is near the limits of being loosened. but I do have a little room to adjust. That being said, the pressure of the nose mask pressing on my lip is driving me crazy!
How much air leak is ok? I would love to loosen the mask a bit and allow more leak, but I am not sure what is an ok upper bound. I have been keeping it at around 6 L/min.
