Big variations in nightly AHI numbers
#21
Just a note about varying AHI numbers. I do a fair amount of traveling, and the change in beds in different hotels raises my AHI, even changing sleeping position at home causes it to jump around. So there is more to AHI varying than the machine - sleeping position, stress, alcohol consumption, time since last meal, etc.

I think you're right NorthernGuy. I travel a lot also and notice a difference - actually my best numbers often come in hotel rooms - hard to figure that one. The hotel beds are not nearly as comfortable as my own bed.

Will have to start noting stress levels and looking for a correlation.

JaneAM,
It may help if you start to keep a journal, especially if you travel a lot.
Make note of where you are, time you went to bed, and AHI, and more importantly, how you felt when you woke up.

This way, you may be able to pinpoint when the higher AHI readings occur.
