My Air and Mask Seal
#1
My Air and Mask Seal
Not that I feel My air gives any important info. as compared to sleepyhead, but this morning my air in the mask seal are reported 2l/min and data from airsense 10 autoset said 16.  Also went and checked with sleepyhead and also said 16. 
Anyone find this discrepency?

Thanks

RE: My Air and Mask Seal
It's a total mystery to me how myAir comes up with some of the numbers. They seem to have no relationship to the user panel on the CPAP. Plus, you get penalized for bathroom breaks? Absurd! You can either pee and go back to sleep or lie awake for hours resisting. Compliance shouldn't be concerned with how many times a rank beginner is peeing. Maybe that can come under fine tuning in a month or two, but NOW?  Huhsign

SleepyHead reports an average leak rate and a 90% leak rate. I don't know which one myAir reports, or even if it's either of those.

The ResMed A10 on-screen display reports the average of the 95th percentile values during the selected period so you need to look and see what you've set the period to. For example, if you have it set to a 30-day period then it will give you a 30-day average, whereas myAir is giving you the value for just one day.

Compliance is determined solely by the number of hours used per night, and the number of nights used.

MyAir subtracts one point from your 100-point myAir score every time you get up to pee, up to a maximum of 5 points. This has no effect on your compliance numbers.

I had my compliance meeting at the Sleep Center today. She had everything on myAir right in front of her: AHI, leak rate, breaks, hours used.... She even asked me about those breaks.

Hours used and days used is all that matters when it comes to compliance.

RE: My Air and Mask Seal
Thanks everyone for their responses.  I think we can all agree sleepyhead gives much more useful information.

I suspect MyAir reports the 70% leak rate since that is what the ResMed manual states is the leak rate used to determine whether you get a smiley face or not for mask seal on the machine screen.
