It,ll get even better. Practice makes perfect
Your numbers looks much better than mine in the early days, even did not sleep more than 4 hours with frequents awaking fiddling with the mask but my overall sleep quality was better than before CPAP. It shows how much sleep deprived I was.
Congrats Your usage hours is fantastic

Thanks, Everyone.

I think I did a little better on the leaks last night. For some reason it divides my sleep into two days, but here's the last half for last night. Only complaint is the bridge of my nose is sore. Will have to work on that...

Total Usage:

4:04 (hrs:mins)

AHI & AI:

Apnea Index: 2.4
Obstructive: 0.2
Central: 1.7
Unknown: 0.4
Hypopnea Index: 0.3
AHI: 2.7

Leak:

Median: 13.2
95th Percentile: 38.4
Maximum: 151.2
Pressure: 7-12

Hi Nirvana

That's looking pretty good. Your AHIs are well within the comfort range (0 - 5) and leaks are much improved. You should keep the 95% leak below 24 - the machine can accommodate 24L/min OK.

Resmed machines start their day at 12 noon. So if you sleep through the day, then the data will be split. Otherwise the on-board clock might be set wrong. Let me know if you need instructions to check the clock.

As DeepBreathing said, CPAP day (24 hour period) start from 12 noon, afternoon noon nap and whenever stop/start the machine will show as mask event in the summary graph

Whats pressure median, 95th percentile and maximum?

ResMed xPAP time and date can be changed by the user. It involves accessing the "Clinician" section of the settings.

I exchanged the Philips Amara for a Quattro Air today... the Amara hurt the bridge of my nose too much and leaked. Hope I have better luck with this one.
