You might try a chin strap to help you keep your mouth closed so you can get your leaks under control.
Good luck to you with your CPAP therapy, hang in there for more responses to your post.

You may wish to see s cardiologist as periodic breathing (also known as Cheyne-Stokes Respiration) is often associated with congestive heart failure and the build-up of fluids in the body. Are your ankles swollen? Do you have pitting edema (where your heavy thumbprint on your calf takes time to fill in. (Google "pitting edema" for illustrations.) Fluid build-up could also be associated with atrial fibrillation and kidney issues. Talk to your doctor sooner rather than later.

When I noticed by PB, I spoke with my cardiologist who prescribed a mild diuretic that appears to have solved the issue.

Best of luck.

Hi jjason18 and welcome to the forum! Glad you found us, and sounds like you will benefit from all the expertise around here! Lucky you found out about your SA at your young age. You can hopefully prevent health issues you might get if not for xpap therapy. Hope you are able to get some improvement soon!

I'm new (4 nights so far) and use a Dreamstation as well. After the second night I had to look up the docs to open the locked Flex setting, put it at 2, and now it's great. I just hope my RT won't yell at me for hacking my CPAP (well, APAP isn't it?)

Can I ask what software you are using to see that data and how are you getting it off the Dreamstation? I pulled the SD card and all it gives is basic time and AHI for the night.

Much appreciated!Thanks

Leaving the machine wide open is not a good solution. I think you're creating apneas at the higher pressures. Looks like the best AHI was when your pressure was in the range 7-11 ish. I'd limit the range to 7-11 and try a full face mask until you get your pressures under control.
