SleepyHead Softwear
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.

UAI – Unknown Apnea Index
An unknown apnea is an apnea during which a leak higher than 30 L/min occurs, precluding accurate determination of whether the apnea is obstructive or central http://www.resmed.com/us/assets/document...er_eng.pdf

On ResScan apneas shown at the time they end in seconds and displayed in colored symbol
obstructive ... red
central ... white
unknown ... yellow

Hypopneas are scored after ten seconds and represented by a blue rectangle
