What would cause an Exhale Puff Index number with a full-face mask? Mine aren't as high as what was listed above, so I feel better about it now, but I just started my CPAP therapy over this past weekend, and I'm seeing it listed as around 5 or 6 per hour every night.
I have found that so far, every night I have woken up after about 3 or 4 hours, at which point I take off my mask, go to the bathroom, then get back in bed. I find if I don't get up and move around, even if only for a minute or two, I cannot get comfortable. I do have auto-off set on mine, and I just take the mask off and let it shut itself off. Could this be causing these numbers? Due to the size of my bedside table, I had to basically put the machine out of reach from my bed so that my alarm clock and cell phone are within reach (I need my phone close by so I can answer work calls when I am on-call).
Also, as I said, I have only been using my CPAP for 4 nights now, so I am still trying to get used to it, so I may be worrying about nothing.
