How To Get Sleepyhead To Show Less Than 10 Second Events?
I am wondering how many 9 second, 8, 7, 6 second events I am experiencing... How do I get this from SH?

It's not a Sleepyhead thing. It is your machine thing. It's not recording them. I don't think you can get SH to show what it doesn't know is there. It doesn't interpret the data all by itself, only takes the results given to it and turns it into a language we can understand.

Less than 10 seconds is not considered or scored as an event
Not sure about SH, ResScan flow limitation graph - flat shape indicate upper airways obstruction

There is a feature in SleepyHead Preferences, "CPAP" section, called "Custom User Event Flagging." I haven't tried to use it but it looks like you can specify a percentage of flow restriction and a time interval you want to flag. (I'm using Mac version 0.9.5 (testing).

I'd be interested in what you find out if you decide to experiment with it.Smile There's a warning in that section that it's an experimental feature to capture "events missed by the machine." There's also a note about enabling the feature before Import. If I was going to experiment with this feature I'd first make a backup of all my data in case there's a problem.

You weren't all wrong.Wink All the data is still coming from the machine itself (and of course it has to be a full data machine). SH is just "reading" that data in different ways depending on how you configure the custom user flag.
