Afternoon nap... Not one obstructive, although I woke up briefly before rolling over, with the familiar feeling of a snore coming on. I was not expecting this pie graph at all.

Now that I've set up the Swift as the spare which is ready to go, I'm back on the P10. Bliss.

Well..  from what I can tell from Sleepyhead, the summary includes the nap and the night's sleep, yes? 
Would those figures be pretty good in which case?

A bit of help here, please. If warranted, that is. I really don't know, despite reading up before posting. 
I reckon that asking how long it takes to settle into something meaningfully like effective therapy, is like asking how long a piece of string is, so I'll avoid that for now, but.... 

I'm uploading quite a few of these large leak patches of late.  All of my charts are loaded to Imgur each day in case there's a pattern I don't have the nous to recognise.  I've been on this gig for 22 nights now, with no issues in relation to good/bad nights in terms of my sleep as I know it.  Seeing where the red line is, most in the greyed areas don't seem to be much over at all (?), so it's more the duration of concern than the level? 

As far as I know, I'm not mouth breathing, but then again I sleep like a log so I wouldn't know.  I'm certainly not yet feeling any better during the day, nor waking up anything resembling refreshed. 

I can only presume that unconsciously I've settled into being attached to something quite intrusive for the first time in my life, accounting for the leaks, likely related to increased movement over time.  

My settings have been the same for a week (min from 8 to 9 being the only change for a while).

I guess though, while avoiding the piece of string question, what I'd like some reassurance with, is whether the data so far is showing it's making a difference?

Doza, I hope it’s okay to toss this question into the mix for analysts. It came up with the juxtaposition of leaks and flow limit in your chart and your question about leaks.

Question for analysts....
“How is it that leaks and flow limit echo one another? A big leak wouldn’t create less flow limit rather than more?”


I am in total empathy with the simmering frustration thing, the maddening leaks that don’t seem to correspond to reality, the dawning realization that A10A 4Her seems to be slacking off on the job of perking up a tired Her.

LOL 'a tired Her'. Pretty much!
