Air leak question on a Resmed S9
I know the AHI number I see each morning is an average of the night's sleep. What about the Smiley face. If it is a frown ( or a smile), does that mean that for the night I was averaging excessive leaks or maybe just the last 10 minutes, or hour?

RE: Air leak question on a Resmed S9
I believe it's based on the 95% or less average for the entire night Casita, but I'm not sure. I have a thing about smiley/frowny faces looking at me first thing in the morning so I don't let them do that.

I believe that the smiley face is based on 70% or less rather than 95%.
