RE: Why did I do that?
Well I did talk to my technician last week and he said he did the same thing from time to time. No real recommendation except there is an alarm feature on the Airsense10 for when the mask is removed for a set amount of time it will beep. Anyone know how to access it?
He was very pleased with how I was doing,. My events are averaging .3, mask leaking is nil (using the nasal instead of a pillow). Using the scoring from the Resmed feedback I've had 9 nights out of 14 with a score of 100 one night of 70 because I went to bed late the rest high 90, that was because of not getting a full 7 hours each time.
One day I put the mask on, looked at myself in the mirror, played with the straps and then when a did a test fit on the machine. Finally felt I had a good fit. The following morning I had a 100 and been consistent since.

Hi Coastie! As you become more comfortable with your mask and machine, you will probably see a decrease in these type of events. However, do not be surprised if they still occur occasionally. i have been using CPAP for almost 7 years and it still happens to me once in a while.
