All I can say is that it continued to run just fine after I upgraded my Win8.1 Lenovo to Windows 10.
The above is my opinion. It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.
I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.

Thanks, "Deep Breathing",
When I asked about the reference range, you are correct. I am asking what is normal, much like a lab test for blood analysis. There are certain guidelines which are considered normal, and there are outliers.
I am aware of the AHI, ideally with a score of less than five, and as close to zero as possible. As I learn more, I would like to drill down to more specific categories. For example, what is a normal Periodic Breathing score? What is an optimal number? What is a normal Hypopnea Index? What is optimal? Finally, the same questions about the CSR.
These are my more specific questions/concerns. I am currently using an APAP. I wonder if I need a BiPAP or ASV. I am only five nights into my APAP therapy. When I meet with a sleep doctor in three weeks or so, I would like to be informed about my options.
Thanks again ..
I found the Respironics guide "11-10-12_ASV_-_Indications_Algorithms_and_Titration.308190318.pdf" to be quite helpful in learning about the various waveforms you will see when using Sleepyhead. You can also Google the various terms you see to get an understanding of the terminology used in sleep studies, Sleepyhead Software, and discussions here. There are numerous glossaries of sleep related terms as well. Delve into the graphs you see in Sleepyhead in 5 to 10 minute segments. Look at the events that are tagged in those segments. See how the waveforms of OA,CA and Hypopneas show up. Your pressure settings are quite low to start. You should get a lot of useful information from Sleepyhead that you can bring to this forum and your Doc. Keep in touch.
