I have had my CPAP for 2 years and never had a major problem with the mask fit on my nasal pillow mask. Most nights were 20/20. About 7 months ago it suddenly starte reporting much lower numbers. I change my mask every 6 months and the pillows at least every 2. Outdoor there be a problem with the machine itself?

I like to look at my AirSense 10 data in detail using the free SleepyHead software. The software allows you to see minute by minute what your air leakage is. That should quickly tell you what the problem may be.

Could it be the machine? Not likely. Is it possible the mask type has been changed and is not correct for your actual mask. The typical nasal pillow mask, the ResMed AirFit P10 should have a mask type set at "pillows". Setting it incorrectly might change the leak report, but not sure.
