Using an s9 Adapt for past few weeks for central sleep apnea
Attached is typical results
Should I be raising pressure or is there a leak problem with nasal mask?

RE: s9 Adapt adjustments
This is my initial observation. There seems to be a correlation between your large leaks and your hypopneas. Are you a restless sleeper? Chin tucking and its resultant position could be dislodging your mask while causing the hypopneas. I'm sure others will have a better insight on this.

RE: s9 Adapt adjustments
I think Red hit the two major suspects for me. This is either a mask fit issue or potentially a positional apnea issue or both. Your setting range should be sufficient to normalize tidal volume during a central with an open airway. This makes me suspect an obstructive element like chin-tucking, especially with clustering of events, and the presence of leaks at the same time means this may be movement or a mask leak. Read the soft cervical collar wiki in my signature links and the Positional Apnea article linked from there.

RE: s9 Adapt adjustments
Thanks for reply...when turning and laying on side, seems to be leakage so will need to work with size and tightness of nasal mask
