graph questions
I have attached the resmed charts from last night with the flexfit and the previous two nights with the quattro. I have also attached the summary data. It appears that the leaks are lower with the flex fit. I am not sure about how I feel about the flexfit yet. It is strange, but the forhead part does not actually touch my forhead. At least I dont have the red marks on the bridge of my nose with the flex fit. I wake at times with slight leak under the chin. I just have to shift the mask a drop and the leak goes away. I would appreciate feedback based upon the attached graphs. Is the leak rate within the acceptable range or is it still too high?

RE: graph questions
I'd definitely say that the results you're getting from the Flexfit are more promising than the Quattro. For most of the night with the Flexfit you're getting zero leaks which is great, last night you just had 3 short spikes where you went above the 24.0 l/min line. Most likely, those just occurred when you changed sleeping positions and you just lost your mask's seal momentarily. If you can eliminate those, then your results are excellent and you should benefit greatly from CPAP therapy. Your AHI graphs look pretty good. I notice in the summary Usage graphs however that you have some very short sessions of 4 hours or less and also just about every night, you have multiple sessions where I'm guessing you're either waking and going to the restroom or else turning the machine off to readjust your mask. Finding the right mask is probably one of the toughest things because masks are very personal and one mask may work great for someone and terrible for another. I get the best results from the Quattro FX. I think you're very close with the Flexfit and would suggest you give that one a try for a longer period of time to see if you can eliminate those spikes. Do that and you'll probably eliminate those multiple session evenings too. Good luck! Bed

RE: graph questions
Zonk you are correct that those mutiple sessions are when I turn off the machine momentarily to go to the bathroom. I believe that I have had two nights when I wore the mask less than 4 hours
