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!

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.

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!
