Take a look how to organize charts at the bottom of the post. It helps to see all the information easily. And use F12 key to get a screenshot to add at the bottom of the reply. 

As far as I can see your added events were caused by large leaks. You need to find out why you are having stake leaks and prevent them.

RE: New REsmed was working then not? Help?
Ive noticed my Resmed has SEEMED to be leaking more. Like I kinda hear/feel air near my face. Additionally as night my nasal pillow seems to be getting pushed around/off center when I sleep on my side. Anyway to prevent that? Was I having leaks the first 2 nights? They seem really good

I did the mask fit and got the ALL CLEAR on it.




As for the screens. I did press F12 and I did setup the charts the way the wiki told me too. Are they not correct?? What do i need to change?

Notice at the middle of the left hand column, Time over leak redline - .711% for the first graph.  Time over leak redline 6.282% in the 3rd graph.  Now look at the area grayed in the flow rate chart - the events correspond with the leaks.

The chart should look like the one I have put in and it should be added by clicking on New attachment at the bottom, once you do that you can look at in in preview.  If it is what you want click add attachment at the bottom.  That makes it the correct res for the forum and makes it easy to view.

Notice the charts on it you are missing the top one that shows what each event is.  You can see the events in the flow rate but it is very hard to tell what they are by color only.  The top one allows you to quickly see what events are important and need to be addressed.

As far as mask fit - it just shows how it is at that moment - not while you are sleeping and moving around.  Sometime tightening can help but if you over tighten it makes it worse.  You just have to experiment and find what works for you.  I have used the Resmed Pillows also and found I had to go to the largest size to stop leaks.  So you know Amazon has the cushions and are very reasonable.  I just got a cushion for my resmed full face mask that was $59 at the supplier for $18.  When I purchased the pillow cushion I think was less than 15.  So you could try a larger size.

I tried the larger size but it leaked WAY more. Like a steady flow or air blowing out my nose - felt unusable.

Is there a guide on how to setup my OSCAR then? The one I followed apparently was incorrect?

I posted an example you can try to make it look like that.  You can MOVE each chart by using your mouse.  Just click on it on the left side near the name of the graph and drag it.  You can make the graph bigger by clicking on the bottom line in the chart and dragging it.

And you can make the a chart go to the top of the stack by right clicking next to the name of the chart and choosing pin and it will stick to the top of all charts.  That is what I did with the event flag chart.

I feel that the mask fit function is really not worth the time involved. Grin and Frown ghouls that supposedly grade your leaks without any numbers aren't useful when OSCAR can chart the whole leak chart all night under your defined therapy pressures. You can zoom in on OSCAR to see details. Try this with the leak ghouls, and you're getting bigger leak ghouls.

For me, part of the Apnea treatment is getting to where good results are repeatable. You need enough detail to know what's going on to track progress. The ghouls cannot be as useful.

You chart looked ok, but is hard to see clearly.

The second link gives instruction for using the Attachment Feature.
