Hi, new here. Details: 1st sleep study and prescribed Dreamstation and large size Amera full face mask. When DOC got my disk and saw results ordered another study.
Then home care company changed pressure to (I don't know what) but after ramp up, I feel more air pressure. Now, I only get a 30% mask fit, leaking, I'm a side sleeper and mouth breather. My AHI is now always below 5. Before it was very high but with good mask fit.
Question: should I care about mask leak as long as AHI is good? Or, does leaking mask make AHI results inaccurate.
I just raised my pressure and my leaks went away.
Just my personal opinion. My posts are not medical advice or a statement of fact. Please consult a qualified physician or other qualified medical personnel. Please comply with all applicable laws, codes, regulations, and protocols.
Thank you. Unfortunately, when machine blows more air now I get indication of poor mask fit. But, under 5 AHI.
