However, last night my wife was awakened by a "blow drier sound." It was me! Evidently I opened my mouth and the air came out rather forcefully. Yet this morning I scored 100 on MyAir and it said my leak rate was 0. This just doesn't seem right. So I'm going to get sleepyhead today and look at the data itself. Perhaps that was one small blip in the night and the MyAir reports the whole 7-8 hour average?
So has anyone noticed accuracy issues with MyAir?
I'm sort of at the same spot you are in therapy (maybe a week or two more of experience). After some horribly leaky nights, I wasn't convinced of MyAir's accuracy, so I got a copy of sleepyhead and started looking at the details.
All I can say is that I don't know how MyAir is coming up with the leak figure it reports, which seems to usually be more optimistic than reality. I also can't figure out how the S10 is coming up with the leak figure it reports (which is different than MyAir, and seems less optimistic).
There's been a couple of nights that I was sure I was leaking intermittently all night, and sleepyhead confirmed it, yet somehow MyAir seems to think I wasn't having any problems. My favorite was the night that I apparently didn't secure the mask correctly and I awoke with it laying on the bed beside me blowing air in my face. Yet, somehow I had virtually no leaks according to MyAir and a smiley face on the machine. Yeah right.
So.... It seems like MyAir ignores all but the most extreme of leaks - which doesn't seem very helpful while I'm trying to figure out how well I've got my mask adjusted and so on.
I'd highly recommend a copy of sleepyhead, as for me it has made all the difference in the world for being able to adjust masks and gain enough data to be able to understand when I had a good leak night and when I didn't. Especially since my leaks tend to be large and short. I'm also getting to the point that I can *tell* when I wake up how things went.
