How Does SleepyHead Determine That You're Snoring?

How Does SleepyHead Determine That You're Snoring?
What physiognomical phenomenon would trigger SleepyHead to register a snore? And what kinds of expressions are included in "snore"?

SleepyHead can't pick up vibrations because there's no throat vibration sensor. Correct? And no audio track.

So what does a sleeping body do to rack up a snore on a SleepyHead chart?

Rapid throat flapping? Exhale Spurts? SleepTalking? Sighing? Coughing? Licking lips? Crackling dry mouth?


Or, heaven forbid, nostril hair swaying in the wind?

Thanks, Walla Walla, but ooooh, boy..... my worst fears may have been confirmed..... oscillating nasal hair.  Dielaughing

That brings me to the other aspect of my question. The "snore" graph must register anything that oscillates rapidly. This is presumably not just a snore. It could definitely be a snort. A cough would likely do it? But how about lip chewing? Post-nasal drip? Talking in your sleep?

If you look at the flow chart, a flagged snore usually goes with a flow limited inspiration with a ragged top. I suppose you could experiment with different grunts, snorts, coughs and intentional snores and see how that works out.   Dont-know

I have never played the nose-hair harp, but have trimmed a few.

Sleepyhead doesn't do it. The machine detects snores and all other data of interest and saves it to the SD card. Sleepyhead just reads what's on the card and presents it in a readable way.

It sounds like a creative experiment is in order.

My APAP will report to my incompetent Sleep Center that I had a mask off with wake up 20x in one night. This could create a significant abundance of jollity.

Give me a few days, and I'll report back. A definitive wave form corresponding to the dreaded nasal hair oscillation.
