As your airway begins to collapse it first limits the flow of air, but not enough to be called a hypopnea. If it continues to collapse it could become a hypopnea or even an apnea.
Auto CPAP machines respond to flow limitation by increasing the pressure in an attempt to prevent the airway from further collapse.
