What is this type of apnea event?

What is this type of apnea event?
I've never seen this on my OSCAR results before, what type of apnea event is it?  Should I be concerned about it?

Thanks

Is just means the machine could not determine if it was a central or obstructive apnea.

I'll call it a Central, as there is no large recovery breath following that arousal

I'd suspect Central as well

I'd also say Central. There were no recovery breaths, and it followed two or three big breaths, so you were well oxygenated for a while.

With the bouncing up and down before it -- maybe you shifted position, and held your breath?

It's likely caused by a movement during sleep.
