I have a beard and mustache. My median leak rate has been 0 l/min. for quite some time now. My 95% leak rate is generally below 8. My point is that your beard should not be much of a consideration in deciding how your leak rate is doing. Several nights ago I did get a leak rate spike of 160 but it was only momentary - no worries.
I can not remember if you are using software to download and analyze your data but if you are not, you should. Download Sleepyhead from this forum and use it to look at how your leaks are for the night. It would be very helpful.
I have not been using any software, I will check that out
OK, feeling not so bright here, I downloaded sleepyhead, plugged in the card from my CPAP and I am trying to import data. I looked in the root, DATALOG and SETTINGS folders and it is finding no data. There are files in all 3 folders so I am not sure what I am doing wrong
I am an IT tech for a living, so not green to PCs, just do not seem to be finding what this program seems to be looking for in my files
OK, apparently the first version I downloaded was not legit. I found the correct software and can read my data now. It would seem that I ned to make adjustments on my facemask. Has anyone else found that when you made the mask tight enough not to leak on the lower straps that you wake up with the neck and lower part of the skull throbbing?? When I make it tight enough that seems to be what I get, my neck ends up so stiff I can heardly turn my head.
Keepin at it
