leaks and AHI #
#11
Thanks very much for all the feedback

the graph above was with nasal pillows...I have been going back and forth trying to achieve an optimal combination. I have been a mouth breather in the past but thought I was doing a good job keeping my mouth closed since going back on therapy in December. I have a hybrid mask that I tried one night but could not get a good seal during the mask test. And I got odd results the next day when I imported the data.

My feeling about your leaks is that they were not great but not that bad. I also tend to think that they were mouth leaks, so a chin strap might help. I use a full face mask but still need to keep my mouth sealed to avoid dry mouth. I do fine for a period of time and then I need to go back to the chin strap. I guess my body forgets and has to be reminded.

Best Regards,

PaytonA
