Sore Throat
(06-03-2013, 01:06 PM)Tommy012175 Wrote: Ok so i used my full face mask last night and it was better.

But why would the leak say 49 for the full face. I never felt or heard any leaks. Normally i will wake up if i am leaking.

Nasal stays between 28 and 33.
Because full face mask have higher vents leak rate than nasal masks
Resmed nasal masks vents leak rate 37 L/min and full face masks 44 L/min @14

Icon reports 90% percentile leak which is leak been at or below that number for 90% of the time using the machine
The software show % of time spent in excessive leak but from your numbers, my guess would be 0%
