Other than a sleep study, where are you getting the RDI measurement from?

SleepyHead reports it.

There's an option to switch from AHI to RDI.

It takes awhile to figure out all the information SleepyHead gives you, or at least it did for me. After a few weeks of looking at the graphs I began to see patterns and this helped me what was happening.

Look above the circle and below the calendar and you'll see some tabs. Click on the "events" tab and then expand the events categories and click on each event to see a magnified close up view of what's going on. This to my mind is the best feature of SH, but it took me a couple of weeks to find it.

Thanks Terry, I found that switch, and also found out how to add in the parameters that I believe identify the arousals that are not full 10 second apneas.
