The Apneaboard Wiki has a glossary of terms, acronyms and lots of other useful information: http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...=Wiki_Home
The apnea hypopnea index (AHI) is the sum of obstructive and clear airway apneas (breathing cessations > 10 seconds) plus hypopneas per hour. It is averaged over a full therapy session. Your machine also breaks down that data.

Periodic breathing is any respiratory pattern that has a repeating pattern. Normally not a problem, it also includes Cheyne-Stokes Respiration which is a common complication of congestive heart failure.

Take a look at the wiki for more, and download the free SleepyHead software which will really reveal the data capabilities of your new machine. Welcome to the forum, and don't hesitate to ask questions.
