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 ....

Regards

Enrique

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.
