Sleepyhead parameters differ?

Sleepyhead parameters differ?
I trialled a Respironics Dreamstation for a few days, and now have a Resmed A10. Looking at Sleepyhead, the events are different as the Dreamstation has more events available.

Is this something I need to set up in Sleepyhead, or is it simply that the Resmed doesn't supply the extra data? (See attachments)

If it s a newer A10 - last few years, it should also track RERAs. it will also track User Flags 1 and 2 if you like. UF1 and 2 are arousals but not technically apneas if set for the default of 8 seconds. See CPAP tab under Preferences.

Thanks you; the serial number is 22141321850 which I think means manufactured in 2014? It's a rental (trial) machine so might be old enough not to have those parameters.

Looks like you have everything setup. You can check at the bottom of your charts under event flags to make sure they're all green.

That's correct on the date. Year '14 means it does not have the RERA detection.
