SleepyHead Data Question
#1
When looking at the details under the Daily tab, what do the numbers represent? Are they a percentage of the entire night? Or do they represent a singular event?

For example, my Hypopnea reading for last night was 1.83. Does this mean I experienced hypopnea 1.83% of my total sleep time last night, or 1.83 times throughout the night?

Thanks in advance and  Sleep-well

Apnea–Hypopnea Index is the rating that indicates how severe you sleep apnea is. Your apnea and hypopnea make up an hourly index. In your case you had 1.83 hypopnea events per hour. If you add in your apneas per hour that would give you your total AHI score.

AHI is a rough metric showing how well your sleep is going

but if the apneas are long they only count once
even if your O2 goes seriously low

if the apneas are short then its okay as a rough guide 

imho the min O2 is a far better indicator of how you are doing 
although if it does not go low then the number of apneas has more meaning
