Question about Resscan chart
Question about Resscan chart.

What is the light blue line on the pressure scale below "the real data?"

What is the red line? The left label area says it is Max pressure, but that's certainly not what my max pressure is!

RE: Question about Resscan chart
On the Resmed site I do not find an S9 Adapt that is not an S9 VPAP Adapt but then I am not the most adept with Resmed's web site. If your machine is a VPAP Adapt then the blue lines are probably the EPAP and IPAP pressures. I do not have a clue what the red line might be unless it is max Pressure Support.

Best Regards,

G'day Jcarerra.

The light blue line is the EPAP pressure. The red line on your sample is actually the minimum set pressure. The maximum pressure line isn't always visible - sometimes it shows up when you zoom in more (say to 30 minutes). I suspect it's just a screen resolution thing.

Thanks. After looking at it some more, I think you are right.

I don't know, though, why the blue line ("current" EPAP) never gets down to the set minimum EPAP during periods when breathing is "normal." It looks like it is actually using a minimum that is a number or two above the set minimum.
