Flat lines in flow rate, waking up in a panic
RE: Flat lines in flow rate, waking up in a panic
(11-29-2022, 10:09 AM)Sleeprider Wrote: At 00:58:30 there is a legitimate OA event where inspiration is obstructed. The inhale following apnea shows tissue occlusion / snore and an arousal with recovery breathing.

At 02:15:20 you have increasing flow limitation leading to arousal which is classic RERA. This is followed by an inspiratory breath-hold at 02:16:30 and an apparent shift in position. Both events would cause heart-rate increase.

At 04:31:50 you again shift position inhaling and holding breath while moving. After shifting position, you exhale, take a larger than normal inhale and exhale before resuming normal sleep rhythm.

All marked events are normal arousal or movement during sleep causing heart rate increase.  The OA and RERA might be treated or avoided with higher pressure, but with this low event rate, no changes are indicated.

This is more helpful than you can imagine. Thank you for taking the time to assist.
