Resmed AirFit P10 Acceptable Leak Rate
#1
I have the following date from last night and the past week using SleepHead software. SleepyHead is saying I am having high leak rates. The numbers don't seem unreasonable to me. Opinions please.

Av. Leak Rate last night 9.1 past week 6.25
90% Leak Rate last night 24 past week 15.6
% of time above Leak Rate Threshold last night 9.82 past week 6.24

Thanks

Your leak rate is on the high side, with large leak being about 10% of the time last night, but lower than that for the week. The resmed software wouldn't even identify it as a problem. ASV uses variable pressure and leaks can be a bit higher. Just do your best to keep it under control, and be comfortable. Sleepyhead commentary on the welcome page about your AHI or leak rate comes from a software author, not a doctor...don't worry about it too much.
