RE: Bloating with Aircurve 10 VAuto
Your current Sleepyhead chart posted above seems correct. Sometimes, an error in reported AHI can be fixed by rebuilding the data. From the SH menu, select Data/Rebuild Data. Your RT is not going to rely on SH for this information. If they ask for the SD card, they will be using their own program.

Your machine showed an AHI of 2.6. SleepyHead shows an AHI of 2.6. They therefore agree. Not sure where you're getting the figure of 13 from or where you think your RT is going to see 13.

RE: Bloating with Aircurve 10 VAuto
Just to clarify...Sleepyhead saw AHI of 2.6 but machine showed AHI of 13 and events/hour of 2.6. The number that Sleepyhead shows as my AHI my Aircurve shows as events/hour. The AHI shown by Sleepyhead is consistently around half the number my machine calls my AHI. Hope that's not too confusing.

Events per hour is the same thing as AHI.

RE: Bloating with Aircurve 10 VAuto
Events per hour was your AHI during the previous night's sleep. AHI is the period average, so for a period of 30 days, for example, that's your AHI during that 30-day period.

Scroll to "Period". Set it to "One Day". Then the events per hour will match the AHI.
