ResMed Report and Open Mouth Sleeping

I got into the Advanced Info as suggested by Zonk, and got the following for the 30-day period:
Leak = 7L/min. and AHI 0.8, total AI 0.6, Central AI 0.0

These numbers seem OK to me, but can folks with more experience than I have comment please?

Thanks again!

Wow excellent numbers, I am on day 2, last night I took my mask off twice, totaling < 3.5 hours when the night was done. Don't even remember taking the mask off. First time, wife wakes up, baby, put your mask on...open eyes there it sits, put it back on, wake up at 5:00am, there sits mask, ugh.

Gosh I have severe apnea, I so hope I get use to this. I have the ResMed Quattro Air, love the mask, albeit for a beginner, very easy to remove....it appears :-(

I believe you have in your 'settings', the ability to turn the auto on/off to 'off', and then turn the 'high leak alarm' to 'on'. If you did this, simply taking the mask off would not turn your machine off, and about 10-15 seconds after taking the mask off, the alarm would go on, and would not stop until either the mask was put back on, or the machine was turned off.

This might help?
