breathing in too much exhaled air

Thanks, will do. I'll get rid of it when I have read the data.

I tried minimum pressure 4.5. I woke with the mask off and no recollection of having removed it (it's the P10 nasal pillows mask).

Anything I can do to prevent this from happening? A night ago, I could only wear it until 2am. After that, I could not breathe enough due to exhaled air (or so it seemed) with either of my two masks (nasal and nasal pillow). This night I must have pulled it off or it must have slipped off in my sleep. This is strange. I had no trouble breathing last night when I started using it (as opposed to a night ago). I have been fully compliant from the time I started (about two weeks ago).

I still get nauseous breathing in exhaled air from my P10 nasal pillows mask. Are there other users on a Breas? Can you switch off the ramp? I wonder if low pressure is the issue (I'm on min pressure 4). The Breas ramp seems to be forced, i.e. it has a minimum of 5 minutes without possiblity to switch it off. A couple of minutes of low pressure is enough to make me nauseous.

You did not say but as the leak is decent, talk to your doctor if possible to increase the minimum pressure closer to 90% pressure
