Sleepyhead daily report question
i was looking at my sleepy head daily report to check out my new PR FitLife mask compared to my HC431.
and i hace a couple of questions about the line of info above my EVENT Flags Chart, it reads.
AI=0.44 HI=0.44 CAI=0.44 REI=1.75 VAI=1.17 FLI=0.73 PB/CSR=0.00%


what do these letters mean

Hi Wogdod. Some of the items in your list aren't included in the glossary. AFAIK, the following apply:
  • AI = Apnea index. The total number of apneas (including central, obstructive and undefined) per hour
  • HI = Hypopnea index. Total number of hypopneas per hour
  • AHI = Apnea - hypopnea index. The total number of apneas plus hypopneas per hour
  • REI = ??
  • VAI = ??
  • FLI = Flow limitation index. Flow limitation events per hour
  • PB/CSR = Periodic breathing / Cheyne-Stokes respiration
Not sure of the second part of the question. Assuming you can see the daily graphs, you need to save them as a jpg or png file. Easiest way to do this is to do a screen dump {Alt}{PrtScrn} or in Windows use the snipping tool. Save the image file somewhere convenient on your computer, then use the attachment tool under your new reply text box. Let me know if that's not what you meant.
