Which way are readouts better?
#1
Question 
I have been studying the respironics and sleepyhead results and wonder if there is a chart that says which way a result number is better.  Obviously AHI going lower is good, and lower leakage percent is good. But what about all those other acronym letter results?  Are some trending higher good and vice versa?

If this has been covered please post a URL or pointer to Apnea thread.

Thanks

Look under the Useful Links below for the Robysue's Beginner's Guide to Sleepyhead. Begin at Chapter 4, Basic data interpretation, and higher.. That should provide the information you are seeking.

pretty sure there is a post that explains all the acryonyms

and probably one that tells how to interpret the numbers too

ask a specific question and you are more likely to get a specific answer
