The machine is respironics system one. Sorry if I made a mistake. Maybe I got confused with my mask. According to the company (respironics), a new session will start if you stop for longer than 1/2 hour. They said that the machine will show the last session and the software the full day from noon to noon (no matter how many sessions). I tried sleepy head, and it seems to give the same results as the bluetooth app (respironics software)
fblauer I am glad you can check your Respironics machine with SleepyHead and the DreamMapper software and are getting the same, lower number than your machine shows. It gives me a little more confidence in going with the DreamMapper AHI# with my Respironics DreamStation machine. SleepyHead does not work with my machine yet and I have been getting two different AHI#'s since I started CPAP two weeks ago. I just don't get why they would make the machine's record the number different. I am also not sure about the 1/2 hour break to reset the machines sessions. I don't think I have ever had a break longer than a couple minutes and many nights I don't think I have had a break and the machine # is always higher. For now I will go with the DreamMapper #. I have looked at the limited data the app gives, added the CSA's and OSA's, then divided by the # of hours of therapy and the number always comes up what the app says.
