My left sidebar showing less data than other machines

My left sidebar showing less data than other machines
The left sidebar on my ResMed AVS has colored horizontal bars above the pie chart that show information on Large Leak, Clear Airway, Obstructive Apnea, Unclassified Apnea, and Hypopnea.  I've noticed on some other user's Respironic sidebar there are more items (Flow Limitations, Periodic Breathing, RERA, Vibratory Snoring, Pressure Pulse).  How can I change my preferences to include these?

RE: My left sidebar showing less data than other machines
Hi Haley. Different machines provide different events, and the Resmed ASVs don't record all the things that some Philips machines do. In SleepyHead you can go to Files | Preferences | Events and turn everything on, and the charts will then show you everything the machine records.

As an aside, it's a good idea to turn the calendar off to free up more screen space for machine settings and session information.

RE: My left sidebar showing less data than other machines
I'm on a mac, and under Sleepyhead preferences I have what's on the attachment. Looks like they're all checked except in the "overview" column.  I checked some there and they only showed up on the overview charts, not in the left sidebar.

Any other suggestions?
Also, my sleep clinic therapist said the program they use doesn't show flow rates and flow limitations, isn't that information they should have?

RE: My left sidebar showing less data than other machines
The Resmed Aircurve 10 series machines, including ASV, actually charts things like snores and flow limitations. Periodic Breathing, RERA, VS2 are not charted or summarized as events, and the Resmed does not use pressure pulses to differentiate apnea type, but uses "FOT". There are no options to increase displayed event summaries, you are seeing everything there is.

You should organize and rearrange your charts. Turn off the monthly calendar and show Events, Pressure or mask pressure, leaks, snore and flow limit charts. The charts can be resized vertically and rearranged as shown in the Organize Your Sleepyhead Chart link in my signature.

They should absolutely have that information. Working without that would be like a GP not taking your pulse or temperature.
