Positional Apnea or Something Else?

Positional Apnea or Something Else?
Hi All,

So last night a strange thing happened to my data and usage. IN over 400 days using CPAP/BiPAP, I never have 'positional apnea' happen like this. It could possibly be that, but has anyone seen a situation where maybe you lay on the hose and 'kink' it or something? I found I slept really well last night, or thought I did, but looking at these charts makes me wonder. Let me know thoughts when you get a chance.

RE: Positional Apnea or Something Else?
Here is your image link.  The clusters of OA are reflected in the flow rate, volume, respiration rate, so I suspect it might be real.  As you note, it is a one-off and should not be a concern unless it becomes a continuing problem.  A zoom on the event might tell you more.
