PAP Mask: DreamWear by Philips
PAP Machine: Philips Respironics Dreamstation AutoCPAP
Humidifier: Respironics Dreamstation Humidifier
Pressure Setting: 8 - 20 cm H2O ... 9 average reported most

Is there a relation between these 2 factors ... I'm asking because last night, according to mu dreammapper report app I have an AHI of 48.2 with a mask fit of 61% .... Does my CPAP (dreamstation autoCPAP) "reads" the leaks as "events" of apnea ??

Thanks in advance ... new to apnea treatment and CPAP equipment ....

PAP Mask: Bleep/DreamPort nasal mask
PAP Machine: ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto
Humidifier: ResMed AirSense/AirCurve 10
Pressure Setting: Depends on the machine as I actually have more than one

No....leaks won't end up in the AHI event numbers.

Now a big leak might allow some apnea events to happen during the big leak but leak numbers aren't part of the AHI.
