What's the Highest AHI that you have ever seen?
#21
When I first heard about AHI, I was confused. Why do they only count events/hour? I have no medical education, but my engineer mind tells me that you also need to consider how long the events are. As already said above, a small or moderate condition with low AHI could be very serious if each event is very long, say one minute. I guess the AHI unit is something that was invented before we had computer programs to calculate things more easily.

My study revealed and AHI of 103.1 the Saturday before last. The sleep tech came in and woke me up to put me on the machine. She said "It was painful watching you sleep" I am surprised my wife has put up with my snoring and gasping for air over the past 22 years. She told me she was calling the doctor if I didn't go in and get checked out. I am surprised I haven't had a stroke or heart attack.
I picked up my machine and mask yesterday and my first night result was an AHI of 3.44. Success! Smile Looking forward to experiencing a less drowsy day and having the energy to get back in shape.

On 2016-02-04 my sleep study revealed an average of 127.3 AHI's and an O2 level of 62% with notations of me having cyanosis over 4 hrs 10 mins. (just call me Papa Smurf! Tongue-out-2)

So as they put it to me, I was awake for some 25-30 seconds a minute on average, never ever got into rem.

No one could figure out how I functioned in life, how I could work or how I could drive let alone concentrate.

But, things were changing for me now and I am hardly functional.

After going on CPAP and transitioned to BiPAP (yeah I know it's registered) my AHI's tend to hover in the 0.2 - 4.3 range.

I don't get more n' about 3 hrs contiguous sleep at a shot..

Looking at some of the reports, it's interesting to observe I tend to awaken for good on a central, unknown or apnea event, almost every time.. literally jars me awake.

I'm still trying to make friends with my BiPap... at Ipap of 20 and an Epap of 12.

Absolutely! My untreated AHI was 59, but my longest Apnoeas were for 90 seconds. Scary stuff! (Oxygen sats down to 60%)
