Double Line on Sleepyhead Graph..?
#1
In advance, I apologize if I missed this "Feature" in another post, but in my new and learning use of Sleepyhead, my Leak Rate graph has two lines in it, one above the other. I would assume the upper one to be more realistic than the lower which is partially off the chart. Thanks,
Mark

Please disregard the rest of the data. Im only on CPAP 4 days..

On PRS1 machines, the top line is "total leak," which includes the air that goes out from your vent on the mask. The bottom line is "unintentional leak," which is the machines estimate of "bad" leak, including any leak around the mask, or coming out through your mouth.

The unintentional leak is what you need to minimize.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Please forgive my stupidity! I posted the wrong chart!

But I think I have the answer now.

I had the same question--thanks for clearing that up for all of us that hadn't figured it out!
