Numbers Kinda Went Crazy

Numbers Kinda Went Crazy
I am having a difficult time understanding what has happened to my readings over the past two nights.  Also, my AHI reading on Dreammapper sky-rocketed and my mask fit reads zero.  Machine malfunction?  Friday night I did feel that the pressure was higher than usual.  However, i have not felt any mask leaks and i checked each night.

It looks like a huge leak causing your machine to be unable to work correctly. Check all connections and your mask

RE: Numbers Kinda Went Crazy
I see no pressure at all in the statistics. You may have a machine that needs warranty attention. If your supplier agrees it is broken, try to talk them into the Resmed Aircurve 10 ASV if possible and if you're so inclined.

Your first job is to start up the machine and listen for any leaks in the system, and any blockage at the filter intake. Verify you have flow, then see if there is pressure by dipping the end of the tube into a tall glass of water. Observe what depth the bubbles stop flowing from the tube. We cannot necessarily count on OSCAR accurately reporting the pressure, but this is not something I have seen with other machines. Have you tried EncorePro2?
