You cannot delete the afternoon sleep from the machine data, ahi can be higher for some patients during sleep transition known as sleep wake junk with a shorter sleep period the effect will be larger. What type of events are you having ?

RE: afternoon ahi compared to night ahi
You will tend to get more extreme results during a nap because of the shorter sleep time. Any event during a one hour sleep period will have a greater impact on AHI than if it occurred during an eight hour sleep period.
