RE: flow limit of 1
That is clearly an error. You can look at the zoomed flow data to verify what the inspiration flow curve looks like. A flow limit of 1 would infer an obstructive apnea. Please read the link on Organizing Your Oscar Chart in my signature links. There are instructions there for the organization of screenshots and the information we want to see. Also how to zoom in and examine data closer. One thing to check is that the mask setting on your device matches what you're using.
