Can you show the Leak Rate during the runs of UAs?

I also assume each UA had to be at least 10 sec to be registered. That's 7 minutes. Something doesn't add up.

UAs do not have to be in LL the entire time, so perhaps there are a few blips.

But we can't ignore these events either. I say take AHI for what it is worth (which isn't really all that much other than a general indicator),

I think you trivialize AHI when it is a very important number, though RDI predominates as the gold standard for dx and treatment.

In any event, AHI matters- a lot.
