I'm surprised they can detect them at all.

Poor to the point it is questionable if they should even bother scoring them the way they do (due to people thinking they are scored remotely accurately).

These machines miss many that I would say are obvious RERAs (using only OSCAR/machine data) and if a person had EEG data I assume you would find many more that are not scored.

Some of the RERAs flagged do not obviously look like RERAs or occur post arousal etc as well so not only are they poor at accurately scoring RERAs a significant fraction of what they do score often is questionable.

What the Resmed Autosets do well is record flow limitation, and if you know what you're doing you can probably pick out the RERA on the flow rate and flow limitation graphs. The actual flagged RERA events are very under-counted for most people that have 95% flow limitation above 0.2. or even 0.1.
