Red icon for mask leagage

Post by elmerjay » Sun May 21, 2023 11:17 am

For last 3 days have red icon for mask leakage when Air Sense 10 is turned off. Don't hear any leakage sound at all. Daily report has 0 points. I did mask test for leakage when turned on, shows green icon.

Sometime through put the night their was sufficient leak to trigger the Leak Angry Face , beyond the threshold. Could be either mouth or mask leak.

Download OSCAR, put an SD Card into the machine, post some graphs including the leak trace. Then we can see how much leak, when and how much of a priority it is to address.

Mr Frowny red face shows up for leak management when you were in large leak territory for 30 % or more of the night...large leak territory begins when we exceed 24 L/min excess leak.

For how long or how bad the large leak may have been you will need to use OSCAR and see the detailed data.
At this point without detailed data we don't know how much time you actually spent over 24 L/min or how deep you may have gone.

Maybe you spent 32 % of the time with leaks around 29 L/min which would earn you Mr Frowny...but really wouldn't be all that horrible as long as it didn't wake you up.
Or maybe you spent 60% of the night at leaks of 50 L/min which is really bad.

Just goes to show what the 'daily report' is worth.

My sleep doc said that the red frowny face was nothing to worry about,
as my other numbers were OK.

You do understand that it depends on just how bad the leak is will affect the validity of those "other numbers".
Maybe they are okay and maybe the leak is so bad the machine can't record, identify, respond or do what it is supposed to do but can't because the leaks have tied its little hands.

Are those nice low "numbers" really low or would the "numbers" be higher if there wasn't such a leak????
Low because nothing happened or low because the machine was clueless???
