[CPAP] Philips Dreamstation & Dreamstation Go Different AHI?
#1
Philips Dreamstation & Dreamstation Go Different AHI?
Hi all!

I am new to this forum - thank you to everyone who contributes to share such invaluable information and create a truly incredible community.  I'm very grateful.

I have both a Philips Dreamstation that is my main machine and a Dreamstation Go for travel purposes.  With both machines I use a nasal pillow mask.

Here's my question:  


Recently, the AHI scores from the main Dreamstation unit have been in the 4-6 range.  Out of curiosity, I decided to switch to the Dreamstation Go to see if the scores would be similar or different.  With the Go unit, the scores are in the 2-3 range!

Is there any difference in algorithm or firmware that would make scores report differently?

Would it be a good idea for me to upload some Oscar readings?

Thanks!

Welcome to Apnea Board

Sure, let's see the OSCAR data. There are several variables involved with 2 PAP machines are used, and it's best addressed with data.
