Oddball Large Leak I slept thru - no hidden apneas
Interesting - I do not ever (in 2 mo) have leak issues. I use a FFM.

But, last night SH indicated a LL (actually a HL=huge leak) for about 20 minutes. It did not disturb me, Mrs QAL, toto, or the cat.

That just isn't logical. So, I am posting the time period surrounding it.

(1) REM sleep indicated from plot start to 23:46.
(2) LL shown at 00:20 thru 00:28. elevated leak rate indicated from 00:10 thru 00:30 (20 minutes) - the pressure was constant and at lowest setting.
(3) resp constant, pulse really uniform and rather high for sleeping, no SpO2 desaturations. that's what indicates to me this is a special event and I know I was not awake
(4) really interesting part - insp time shift uniformly up and exp time went uniformly down. that is a rare occurrence for me. note that in REM period I have insp and exp rate both shifted down.


has anyone else had such an experience, and did it include abduction? he he
Dedicated to QALity sleep.

I've had all kinds of weird stuff like that happen in the last year I've been on CPAP. Once I woke up with the hose around my throat. I suspect my CPAP machine may have gained sentience and is trying to kill me, but I'm not sure. In the meantime, I just ignore them. As long as my AHI and leaks are good from day to day, I'm happy.
