CONFIRMING SLEEP/WAKE JUNK
#1
Question 
Does anyone have a methodology for confirming sleep/junk using flow waveforms?

What graphs are you trying to analyze for your purpose?

Am I missing something?

If you zoom into the flow waveforms, it should be pretty easy to see when you breathing becomes slow and regular and the Tidal Volume consistent. At least it is on mine. At that point you are probably too close to asleep to produce to S/W junk. And waking up, you will see a fairly rapid transition from slow and regular to not regular with differences in the Tidal Volume.
