Old Dog and New Tricks

RE: Old Dog and New Tricks
Welcome Ingramite!

I use the same machine. Your data looks fine. There are some leaks probably due to mouth breathing. A chin strap or cervical collar may help. I prefer the latter. It helps with my AHI but not Do you use one? Which Respronics nasal mask do you use? It should be type 1 for Dreamstation and type 2 for Nuance Pro. Not sure about other models.

RE: Old Dog and New Tricks
Thanks for the tips.
I do not use a chin strap and I do wake up with a dry mouth sometimes so it might just be mouth breathing as you suggest.
I'll have to check on my mask to be certain.
