Bad nights, How often
How often do you people have a "bad night" meaning your AHI goes way up? What do you consider a bad night?

After a few pressure tweaks I've been running 1.1-1.9 AHI until last night.... 8.9 AHI.
I feel it today too..... VERY tired.

What's a bad day for you?

You should make a poll out of this question.

We all have bad nights. It happens. No two nights are the same. Did something disturb your sleep? Did you drink any alcohol? Any more than you did the previous night? Are you on any medication? Were you under stress?

Not that you have to answer those questions, it's just a sampling of the many, many variables that go into the type of sleep you have.

Interesting questions.... In my case I was EXTRA tired. A known cause for my apnea. My snore index was off the charts just before a swarm of episodes 2 hours after I fell asleep. Dont-know

Then there's your answer. It is good to be able to see the data, to know that "if I get x tired, then I'm gonna be even worse tomorrow 'cause I won't sleep well".
