Until you asked I didn't bother checking SH.

Surprisingly yes, they are the same, Sleepyhead AHI is 10.58, identical with rounding.

So the bug, if it was a bug, seems to have gone away for now. Interesting.

Anyway, congratulations on your numbers improving. I hope it continues for you.

AHI last night was an amazing 0.69

I raised IPAP to 23.5

Unfortunately velcro strap came loose and I had 3.5 hours of Large Leaks.

Going to raise IPAP maximum to 25.0 and let machine decide on what it needs.

RE: AHI on Sleepyhead & DreamMapper Hugely Different - Why
Acedublb,

The leak rate data on the 4/28 was very good. The leak rate data on 4/29 was extremely bad---as in bad enough to potentially make the AHI data for 4/29 unreliable.

Any idea on why the leak rate on 4/28 was so much better?

The Velcro on one of the straps came loose in the middle of the night and resulted in 3.5 hours of Large Leak..

First few hours looked better though.
