I saw an anomaly in my SH graphs today.
My PRS1 60 series auto says 0% Large Leak in its LCD readout.
SH said I had significant mask leakage for ~12% of the night.
I have attached the graph here. I see that Total Leak and Leak Rate lines are intersecting i.e. Leak Rate is more than Total Leaks. What gives?
Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.
It looks like at 7AM your machine had a silicone fart and lost its memory. Did you have any power problems during that period? Also, since I'm a Resmed user, I noticed your pressure graph is different than what I'm use to seeing. Is this display pattern normal for your pressure changes?

It's my understanding that:
SH reports total leak... including the intentional leak trough the mask vents.
ResScan attempts to report only true leaks.
Or maybe I'm thinking of PR versus ResMed machines...)
He shutdown for about 20 minutes; at about 0630 hours.
The PR pressure graph is sure different than a ResMed's. Looks like a very different algorithm at work.
