Leaks - Resmed vs. Respironics
Leaks - Resmed vs. Respironics
It's been a while since this was discussed, so I wanted to be sure that things have remained the same.

Respironics (and specifically Dreamstation 1) reports the total of Mask Vent rate and (seal or tubing) leaks as "Leak Rate"
Resmed (and specifically Airsense 11) reports the leak rate only (and ignores the Mask vent rate)

If that is still accurate then it follows that a Resmed F30 mask at 10 cm with perfect seal would be reported as 37 L / min on the Dreamstation but 0 l/min on the Airsense 11.

Do I have that correct?

(technical specs for F30 found on page 6 of user guide shows vent flow rate at 37 l/min at 10 cm)

RE: Leaks - Resmed vs. Respironics
Sounds reasonable to me, the intended leak is around that amount.
