Snoring
My wife told me this morning I was snoring while a sleep with my nasal mask and Cpap on. I checked my numbers and I slept for 8.3 hours and AHI was 1.1 with leaks of 8. Any advise?

RE: Snoring
If you check your stats through the Sleepyhead software it will show you your "snore" graph. You should, or might, be able to make some conclusions based on that graph. Perhaps the higher points in the graph will correlate with a time of more leakage, which could indicate mouth breathing. The solution would be a chinstrap.

RE: Snoring
Ask your wife to look and see if your mouth is open during snoring (or she hears inscreased leakage from the mask when you are snoring).

She benefits from a good fitting mask and proper pressures as much as you do.

Whats the pressure? excellent set of numbers

Maybe slightly higher minimum pressure but cannot say for sure without seeing the detailed data graphs. the graphs shows whats goes on the entire night. ResScan and SleepyHead software download links:
