SleepyHead now shows to graph lines
#1
Since I have been using the PR System One 560BT my Leak Rate graph is showing 2 lines. They are both identical, but one is above the other. When I was using my AirSense 10 Elite it only showed 1.

I think that's because Resmed only reports unintentional leaks; and PR machines report total leak (unintentional plus mask vent). The two lines -- upper is total leak; and lower is unintentional leak. I think!
INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SLEEP APNEA. INFORMATION POSTED ON THE APNEA BOARD WEB SITE AND FORUMS ARE PERSONAL OPINION ONLY AND NOT NECESSARILY A STATEMENT OF FACT.

My Resmed S9 only shows one. It must be the only data that this manufacturer records. My observation is the 2 lines represent the total leakage and the other is leakage minus the mask design amount. The Resmed just shows the later. Again, my guess, but it seems plausible.
Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

Here is a link from the Beginners Guide to SH on how the different brand machines report leak rates.

Thanks for all the helpful replies. Looks like I need to spend some time reading the above wiki guide. Not light reading IMHO and will definitely not be done quickly. I guess I have my homework cut out for me!
