Leak Rate Question
Week one in the book (or on the SD card) and last night AHI was at 2.03

My Question is this. This morning my machine says leak rate was 11L/min. On the ResMed Myair web site it says the leak rate was 6L/min and I have the following from SH

Min. 0
Med. 4.80 L/min
95% 9.60 L/min
Max 34.80 L/min

%over max .01%

I understand that SH is not giving an average for the night, but why the difference between the machine and myair?

RE: Leak Rate Question
If you look at the Statistics page of SleepyHead, you should see the average leak readings. This is probably more in line with what MyAir is reporting.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.
