Hope you slept well.
When i have a good night with really few OAs and CAs it seems to increase my numbers of HI. The breathing of a lot of Hi(well apneas too) seem to restart rigth after the pressure pulse.
Is it the fonction of the pressure pulse? OR is it just to detect the sort of apnea?
Is my understanding correct that some of the HI that would have been apneas?
Do HI affect sleep? Since they are really mild in lenght and often the flow just slow dows i'm under the impressure they dont disrupt sleep and have little to no impact on sleep quality. Is my assertion rigth?
Pressure pulse is your machine's method of discriminating between an obstructive and clear airway apnea. It's akin to the FOT method used by ResMed.
Hi's are often the precursor to OA's. Auto machines respond to them to prevent OA's.
IMO: They are not a significant disturbance to sleep quality.
