Have you read the wiki linked at the top of the page? That will explain a lot of the terms.
SleepyHead's Help section explains a fair bit and gives links to some useful info, too.
Also, the setup manual for your machine may explain some of the settings and what they do.

When the Apnea-Hypopnea Index, AHI, is < 5, you are considered treated.
                                                                                                                                                                                  
Please organize your SleeyHead screenshots like this.

If you're willing to use a medical dictionary, pop over to http://www.medscape.com and do a search on specific questions.
The results will be written for medical personnel, however it is possible to decipher it into regular language with a good dictionary.

For explanations more oriented to non-medical people, WebMD is a good site to search and read.
ex. 'apnea' results in this page of results: http://www.webmd.com/search/2/results?query=apnea
