English term or phrase: Leak rate

Estoy traduciendo un texto sobre una máscara de oxígeno médica y no encuentro una traducción que me convenza sobre LEAK RATE. La frase original es la siguiente:

"When using a fixed flow rate of supplemental oxygen, the inhaled oxygen percentage will vary, depending on pressure settings, patient breathing pattern, mask size, and LEAK RATE."

Yo he traducido:

Cuando utilice un caudal fijo de oxígeno suplementario, el porcentaje de oxígeno inhalado variará dependiendo de los ajustes de presión, del patrón de respiración del paciente, del tamaño de la máscara y de la VELOCIDAD DE FUGA.

Muchas gracias por la ayuda.

Un saludo.

Razón de fuga.

Es la relación que existe entre el oxígeno que se pierde por fuga y el flujo total de oxígeno que se envía al paciente.
