The following isn't something I have any real concern about, I'm just curious about it. My AHI is usually good, under one per hour. However I notice that on the rare night I lay for an hour wide awake, or wear my mask while reading in bed for an hour, and then look at the machine, AHI is very high for that hour, 10+. And to be clear, I'm talking about being wide awake, not half awake where I know sleep/wake events can sometimes be interpreted as AHI events.
I don't think I'm having any AHI events while reading in bed, so I'm curious why the machine thinks I'm having so many AHI events when I'm not sleeping. I'm not talking during this time or anything like that (which I'd think could be interpreted as AHI events).

Irregular breathing is perfectly normal while you're awake. Many different, perfectly normal things affect your breathing while you're awake. Just ignore it because your AHI while awake is meaningless.
