Oscar Review/Leak Rate
Oscar Review/Leak Rate
Hi, very new to the board and Oscar software. I have been studying my charts for a few months now and feel a little overwhelmed by all the info. Since I started with a CPAP 6 months ago I have stop snoring but day to day don't really feel much different from before. According to the Dreammapper ap my AHI's are good and there has never been a mask fit below 100% which led me to believe everything is fine. After reviewing the data in Oscar I am concerned with the values I am seeing, especially the leak rate.  I use a nasal cushion and typically put a piece of tape over the middle of my lips. Any insight into these graphs would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Oscar Review/Leak Rate
Almost everyone has problems with leaks. The biggest problem is type of mask (I did not see you listed your mask) the worst for leaks is a full face mask and the list is a pillows. The pillows mask is great if you don’t mouth breath. I think you might do better at a little higher pressure. Hypopneas useually are helped by a higher pressure.
