Strange Dreemstation AHI readings
#1
Strange Dreemstation AHI readings
I have a Dreamstation auto that I am running in cpap mode at 20 cm.   When I look at the built in display
for my AHI  the results don't match what Sleepyhead displays.   

Sleepy head is telling me that today my AHI was .38     that for the past 7 days it was 2.43     and the 30 day average was  4.97
But the display on my machine shows today as 2.6   the last week as 7.8   and the 30 day average was 8.7 .  And when I had a
checkup at my sleep Dr.  his software agreed with the results I was getting from sleepyhead.  I won't lose any sleep over it but
do wonder why the big difference.

RE: Strange Dreemstation AHI readings
Your machine is likely showing you only your last "session", the one you woke up in, not the whole night like Sleepyhead and your doctor's software showed.
