Leak Rate - Rescan vs. Sleepyhead
I download data into both Rescan and Sleepyhead. Just recently I have noticed a disparity in the max leak rate. In Rescan my leak rate is: median 0, 95% 0, max 6 and in Sleepyhead it is median 0, 95% 0, max 15. (Even an old Mirage Quattro does OK)

I just chased it down and it looks like a Rescan bug. The Leak rate graphs in both Sleepyhead and Rescan agree with the Sleepyhead max of 15. I am using an older version of Rescan and I just converted to the latest and greatest Sleepyhead testing, 64 bit, open GL, within the last couple of days.

Just thought that it was kind of interesting.

Best Regards,

Doesn't ResScan attempt to report unintentional leak rate while Sleepyhead reports total leak (unintentional plus mask vent rate) ???

I think that you are thinking of PR machines. I am using an S9 VPAP Auto kind'a like what you have. The machine reports the calculated unintentional leak rate and, to my knowledge, that is what both Rescan and Sleepyhead use.

I've noticed that rescan is weird with my leak reporting as well. I just go by sleepyhead now.
