I have gone thru 4-5 different style of masks searching for just the RIGHT one. Currently I am back to the Swift FX. My machine is giving me some indications on the display that I don't understand. When I run the mask fit it report it is green all the way but the main screen always shows the red face saing there is a mask fit problem. Why is that? It didn't use to do that.
:oops:

It fits when you do the mask fit check without leaks. That part is easy.

What's not so easy is the all night mask fit.
The red face ...is that the next morning? That means that during the night there were a lot of big leaks.
Either the mask moved a lot during the night (from your initial fitting) or you were having a lot of mouth opening/breathing leaks happen during the night.

Yes, that is the next morning.

Are you aware of anyone using Bleep? Does that sysstem do away with leaks other than open mouth?

I have been using the Bleep mask since mid December.
Properly connected and with the adhesive staying in place it seals solidly with zero leaks except for any mouth breathing leaks.
I love it.
Have you seen Jason's video review of it?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZzaY2KAt0c&app=desktop

I know of many people using it quite successfully.

I have some nights with 0.0 leaks....and on occasion I will have a few nights with random leak which is most likely mouth breathing leaks.
Never prolonged though...rarely going into large leak territory...and more importantly never wakes me up...so I simply shrug my shoulders and move on.

Is there a relationship to leaks and AHI's?

There can be a relationship to leaks and AHI numbers.
If the leaks are really, really bad the machine might be totally missing apnea events that are happening and not flagging them...and giving a person a nice low AHI score but because it was clueless...not because nothing much happened.

So it can go either way really....all depends on how bad the leaks are.
How far into large leak territory and how prolonged.
30 minutes deep into large leak territory out of an 8 hour night probably isn't going to make much of a difference but 3 hours...that could.

You really need to use available software to see just how bad the leaks are or aren't.

In other words... NO.

Leaks can affect the AHI, but not directly, but in varying ways as Pugsy outlined.

My wife gas been complaing that my AirCurve 10 VAuto has started to light up durung the night. She at times gets up turns it off and back on. This has only started happening the last few months, it was not doing that previously.

Additionally the red face is alwas on which was not an issue in the past. It does not matter which mask I use.

When I look at the Resmed report in the morning the leaks are always in the 50-60 L/min range.

You're probably leaking so much than the machine's shutting off, thinking that your mask is off.

Something must be amiss as nothing has changed in my sleeping, not much mouth breathing. In fact I got the same results when using a head strap to keep it shut.

Could a leak in the feed tubing be an issue?

Do machines ever require some sort of service?

chin straps don't prevent mouth leaking.

what is 'feed tubing'?

Not usually.

"Feed Tubing" The lg air tube from the machine to the mask.

When you use made up terms, people don't know what you're talking about.

"hose" or "tubing" people know about... "feed tubing", first I've ever heard of that.

And, like I said, "not usually".

Have the machine checked out.
They do have sensors that fail or act squirrelly.
