New Cpap user - Have messed up flow rate
Hello all, I'm a relatively new Cpap user and need some help figuring out why this flow rate looks so abnormal. 



Any help much appreciated!

I think you are using a very old edition of sleepyhead.  They use OSCAR 1.2.0  It is free at the top of the site.  Many, many things have changed.  Upgrade and try again.

Welcome to the forum.

What I see is a vibratory snore on both inspiration and expiration. You can also see this showing in the Mask Pressure chart and I'll bet the leak rate as well.
What I can't explain is the very high flows.

Make sure your hose is not dragging over a edge as that can at times look like this.

The OSCAR team has corrected literally hundreds of issues that were found in sleepyhead so we recommend switching to OSCAR. This is not one of them.
