mask off inaccurate
Resmed 10. I keep getting wild swings with repeat numbers mask off 7-10x. I do NOT take mask off. I do NOT have auto on/off set to on. I do NOT touch machine at night. I put cloth on top of button and balance an emery board on top to make sure I'd know if I did. My seal always gives me total points on my air. Any clue? I even tried mouth tape, no difference.

Have you tried putting the data into Oscar? You'd expect to see numerous gaps in the flow rate waveform.

Welcome to Apnea Board,

I ask you to download the free report tool OSCAR. It will accept data from you CPAP machine which will help us answer your questions. You'll need an SD card in your CPAP while you sleep to capture the data OSCAR needs to create charts.

This SD card can be any brand, standard full size type, of 2-32 GB capacity, and formatted to FAT32, leaving the write protect tab unlocked.

You can attach OSCAR charts to posts as attachments. This is the best way for us to gain insight on your CPAP usage to answer questions.

The issue is not with OSCAR, it is with your computer. I am sure the Apple Store can help figure out what is going on.

In the meantime as BigWing suggested, try SleepHQ.

EZPZ fix. There are special instrux for the Mac. The default for Oscar install on a Mac is that the Mac doesn't trust the app (aka it's not in the App store). However, there's an easy override. I'm an all-Mac household.

IIRC the special instrux for Mac are in the wiki or at the link for the Oscar app.

I'm new ish to Mac myself and have overcome this issue with my sound downloads. As I recall, it's a right click on the app you're attempting to open then open it there. There's probably more to it and I'm probably not using the right names. But yes you can get OSCAR on your Mac.

Mine is a standard not pro or studio Mac Mini M2 24 GB memory 512 SSD running Sonoma 14

I've used Oscar/Sleepyhead on every which variety of Mac, including several MacBooks and a desktop.

Also, it's possible your mask off number reflects a large leak. The smiley on the unit is overly indulgent.
