ResScan Reports for AHI Differs From Machine AHI
Can anyone explain to me why the AHI as shown on my Aircurve 10 machine does not agree with the AHI shown in the ResScan reports ?
For example : 1) for the last 31 days the machine shows an average AHI of 1.9 but the ResScan report for the same 31 days shows 2.1 .
2)For the last 90 days the machine shows an AHI of 2.0 but the ResScan report shows 2.4 .
3)For the last 6 months the machine shows an AHI of 2.0 but the ResScan report shows 2.3 .
The numbers from the machine tend to be lower than from the ResScan reports .

Has anyone compared their numbers from the machine to the ResScan reports ?
