That being said my leak rates have been averaging 60LPM or more. I am not noticing the leaks, which is why I wondered if having wrong mask selected in machine was skewing the numbers.

Thanks again
What Paula said, as far as I,m concerned some leaks is acceptable but have zero tolerance to marks on my nose, marks overtime can lead to infections. You might want look into mask liners. btw your machine S8 report leak in L/s not L/m

RE: Resmed mask settings
Can anyone tell me the difference between setting "Nasal" and "Pillow" on an S9?

Using ResMed Swift FX Nasal Pillow, which is correct? Is this "Nasal" or "Pillow"? Can't find any hint on the ResMed site.

Hi buybeach, welcome aboard
"Pillows" is the mask setting for Swift FX nasal pillows
Also "Pillows" for Swift FX Nano nasal mask (exceptions to the rules)
