Breath Not Detected on Latest Sleephead Version
Can someone give the definition of this statistic--shown as a BND on the chart.  How accurate is this figure?  Until last night I hadn't seen any on the chart but the events breakdown often said one event.  Last night they showed up on the chart big time.  Kinda has me worried.....

It seems to be confined to Philips machine data, and I haven't seen a good reason that it occurs. This Apneaboard thread earlier this year discussed the topic and it seems the consensus was to ignore it. I continue to believe it is an unimportant anomaly in the data. http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...ted--16571

Thanks for that link, Sleeprider--I did a search and it didn't come up. The link brought up a SH report that looked almost identical to mine I figured what I was seeing couldn't be true--otherwise I might not have been seeing it! I had BND events of 4, 2 and 1 minute in a 15 minute period. I also had very low flow at the time--looks almost flat line. My pressure did not raise to max (13) at the time, but did have a non-major leak recorded (19 ). I still came out with 0.89 AHI with an astounding 41 pressure pluses recorded trying to get me to breathe!

ignore it. I have had occasions where my breath was not detected for over six hours. I must be dead.
