Re: Is LEAK affecting my Treatment?

my leaks have been between 50-78 L/min per night - AHI last night registered 5 with a leak of 78, Whether that's "horrible" or "meh, not too bad" depends on what your pressures are, since you're using a Philps machine. Like Pugsy says, we need some data. https://www.cpaptalk.com/wiki/index.php/Osca...

Doesn't sound good.

Which model mask are you using? Do you have dry mouth?

Go to youtube and watch four or five videos on fitting and adjusting your mask model?
ResMed AirFit N20 Nasal Mask -- no dry mouth ..

Re: ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto ???

This look ok? I’m not sure what ti max and ti min is ?

The TiMin is set to standard 0.3 is...

Re: ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto ???

Yes, there is a way to restore the settings to the factory defaults. As well as there is a way to erase any old patient data on the machine...don't forget to erase the SD card as well. Go here and get the clinical provider manual via email. https://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pressure/change-cpa...
