There are four acronyms used, AI, HI, CAI, and UAI. The first two we know, can anyone let us know what CAI and UAI stand for?

Thanks much.

CAI - Central Apnea Index
UAI - Unidentified Apnea Index

Index means it is the number of hours slept divided by the number of events.

I'll add those two to the wiki.

CAI and UAI and HI events are all part of (and included into) the AHI.
