Why this periodic breathing?
RE: Why this periodic breathing?
Thank you. Now I finally got your point..  Smile
One other question. Are the events registered during episodes of leaks reliable?

Most of the time my flow graph is far from perfect once leaks occur. I always assumed that this is the leaks causing decreased therapy efficacy. Is this correct? Or could the leaks also prevent from a proper registration?

RE: Why this periodic breathing?
Downloading the software today, I have been dx w/periodic breathing beyond mask leakage. Have been started on a new medication Acetazolamide to see if it will make an impact. Unforunately my neurologist has my other chip so I can't compare to past data, but can at least hoping to see w/the software if this is eliminating this or not. I'm told if not I'm going to have to be referred to specialists for this.

For me, changing from F30i to P30i made my AHI go up from below 1 to 20 due to periodic breading. I changed back quickly.
