Hypopneas

Hey guys,

When presented with a patient who is having multiple episodes of UAR in the PTAF channel and greater than 4% desaturations..... but the reduction in airflow amplitude is not 30%, have you seen yourself to score them as hypopnea anyways to either qualify patient during SPLIT or simply make them relevant as it is clinically significant??

Interesting.
Placement of cannula is paramount for UARS determination. If there is an arousal along with the desat, I would be forced to include it, at least as a RERA event, so as it helps add fuel to the fire.
