Accuracy of FOT with SlimLine
Doe's anybody know if the use of the SlimLine hose decreases the accurcy of the FOT technology, that determines if an apnea is an OA or a CA?
Under what conditions could FOT become inaccurate?

RE: Accuracy of FOT with SlimLine
In your clinician menu is a setting for hose size. The slimline is listed to allow for the difference in diameter/volume. To answer your question; No, so long as you have the proper hose size declared.
