What does a sleep test need to contain in order to confirm/deny UARS?

What does a sleep test need to contain in order to confirm/deny UARS?
Aside from RDI, this video explains that it needs to measure rip phase, pulse transit time, respiratory rate,  flow limitation, pulse variability, and paradoxical breathinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sa9zNYpTWlM

Also what about EEG? Is this necessary or is the NOXT3/S ok? One doc wants to use the latter.

Does it need to contain all of these? I am due for an in-lab test that will measure al of these except pulse transit time.
