Respiration rate? Sleep stage?
Not my concern.
Movement that pulls the overhead machine hose, a heavier one than my previous machine, to dislodge the nasal pillows by tugging on the hose attached to the mask. That's what I suspect now. So, have invested in some hose clips and that seems to be helping.
The purpose of the video was to capture whether something like that was happening -- did I move around and cause extra pull on the mask from the heated/humidified hose of the machine.
To see what my movements are like when I'm not awake. Only reason sleep stage might be relevant is that during REM sleep we're more likely to not move much as the muscles are somewhat paralyzed. Unless one is a sleepwalker. I've not done that for a significant number of decades, so far as I know.
Since using the hose clip to fix the hose of the mask firmly to the headgear, my leak rate has been much better, and my AHI has finally begun to decrease below 5 most nights. Even lower AHI during daytime naps.
Occam must have been a really boring dude.
