RE: i still dont understand how the leaks data is interpreted
Initially I knew I needed a chin strap because I would wake up with air hissing out of my mouth. After acclimating to CPAP therapy I found I no longer needed the chin strap. But then months later I noticed that at times my leak rates were spiking way up. I had to start wearing the chin strap again to get the leaks under control.
