What is flow limitation? How do I reduce it?
I see in my detailed data, many spikes in flow limitation. A fine look at the Flow data appears to show a flattening of the in flow curve.

I think it's telling me my airflow resistance is high -- i.e. -- closing down.

Should I increase treatment pressure?
