With your help, I was able to go from a cheap "respironics one machine" to a data capable "respironics remstar auto a-flex" It's still a cpap but it has pressure relief when exhaling and has a range of pressures from 8-15.
I wanted to get your interpretation of the numbers. I think I have a mask leaking problem but I want to be sure. I am using a full face Amara mask made by Respironics. I obtained all these numbers right off the machine this morning. I am chubby (I can get away with just saying chubby on here since no one can see me:grin I also have a goatee. Two things that might affect my mask leaking.
62.7% 1 Day

Is that a percent of the time that my mask had a large leak when the machine was in use? Could it be a percent within an hour? I sometimes take my mask to scratch my nose or deal with wetness (gross)- Could that jack up the numbers? I have loosened the mask slightly because it was so tight, but I still get red marks on my forehead and bridge of my nose. Before I had it so tight that I was getting strap marks on my cheeks.
Here are some other numbers. How am I looking?

I tried using sleepy head with my machine but it's not working. It appears that I might need to download/buy encore 2.0. Does anyone have any idea where I could find it?
Again, thank you all!!!!
