It could be false events caused by something else. An event is not flagged unless it happens for 10 seconds or more. The flow rate is our breathing in and breathing out. No breath equals a flat-ish line there. The machine sends out pulses and the "echo" from it determines how wide the airway is (or is not). If the echo is a certain way, then the machine knows it is an obstructive event. If it is another way, it knows it is a central/clear airway event. Basically in a nutshell back of napkin kind of thing. As I understand it, Flow limit is when the flow is choked down and there's a limitation to that flow. Such as a hypopnea or an OA event. If the flow limitation is not there, it could be the machine detected the echo and said "airway is closed" and flagged the event. But the flow rate didn't notice any change. However, that many false events? It could be possible I guess.
Keep in mind, this is how my weird mind understands how all this works. I could be wrong! Just don't ask me to explain how to hold your tongue right or what the heckaroni the minute vent is.
I am wondering if the tremors, sweating, or altered breathing from the Hypoglycemic event could have created something similar to Sleep wake junk? I was hoping another diabetic in the forum would know
it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy
