Sorry if this has been asked before - but can someone explain to me what exactly Flow Limitation is?
Last night my readings were all over the place and I noticed that my snoring was right up and above the very loud level. Looking back, when the flow limitation is steady, the snoring is minimal
Thanks in advance

From our Apnea Board Wiki ...
Flow Limitation - Partial closure of the upper airway, which impedes the flow of air into the lungs.
