RE: Recent increase in Central Apneas and AHI
The lower one is the one that counts on a PR machine.

Sleepinwell reset the y values on the chart, or you may have it turned off.

I checked back when I was on my PR APAP it had two graphs...... my bad. So is the upper graph total leaks for the night?

The upper is total, the lower is excessive.

sounds like to me that total is more important. Sounds confusing.

The fact that different manufacturers report the 'same thing" differently is confusing. OSCAR mostly reports what the manufacturers record on the SD card and we will not change that.

Just to confuse you further....  this shows the difference in how you look at a ResMed leak graph compared to a Respironics leak graph.

There are necessary vs unintentional leaks.

Required: CO2 needs to be vented. Your exhalations need to be vented.

Unintentional: Mask and mouth leaks are problems that need to be addressed. I'd consider aerophagia a form of leaking.
