_ipap Max is bothering you? no. above 13.4 on apap started causing more lip leaks, more than about 15 contributed to aerophagia. with asv, higher pressures increased leaks but I was never aware of the quick ps swings up to 25cmw. only after stopping asv did I notice that I had been feeling a little beat up by the high ps above 20.
_Leakings looks ok..is that right? with relatively low pressure on vauto, leaks are as low as I've had in 3 years.
_have you ever mouth breathed like lately? it's a constant battle. as far as I know my mask never leaks. with vauto so far I'd guess much of anything over my usual median leak of 1.2 is lip leak. mostly on exhale I believe. not much inhale through the mouth I'm aware of.
_would PLMS time spacing getting higher, from 30s to some 45? I'll have to look into that. I still see my standard plm pattern and sometimes some with longer intervals but I wouldn't say that's new with vauto.  some waveforms appear different with vauto than with asv however. haven't figured that out yet.
_do you feel wakeups (bottom off) are normal? Getting higher? now higher than when I first started ripinirol for plm. maybe a hair better than before the med. probably increasing.
_ How do you feel as an average? 5 of 10?
Thanks

some meds may have tiredness as side effect but I do not intentionally take sleep aids except maybe a certain strain of cannabis concentrate that seems to lengthen time between awakenings. however, I'd say I leak more, mostly lip leaks, in deeper sleep. the few times I've found myself mouth breathing, including inhale, has been on my back awakening from deep sleep.

Sheepless,
_considering your answers to my questions, as well as your graphs (details attached), we could move to EPAPmin: 7.6, PS 5.8, IPAPmax 13.4. Last step on this direction. Then, if it is the case, we would star move EPAPmin upward a little bit.

good luck

RE: [split]Vauto, PLM, FL & Mixed Apnea
_it may sounds a little bit strange, but trying to keep gauging your normal RR, could you please check again your BPM?
_ that because your PLMS (too many awakenings; increase RR) brings difficulties/uncertainties on estimating RR while you indeed sleeping (when true CA would come).

tried again, 3 times, sitting at rest, 1 minute each, average 15 bpm.

you didn't ask but I just found samsung health on my phone. it tells me heart rate 65, oxygen saturation 94%, low stress!
