Accuracy of FOT with SlimLine
#1
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?

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.
