How is RDI calculated?


#1

Can you provide some insight about how RDI is estimated when using oximetry?

Does the app for example only use oximetry (i.e. Count hypopneas based on SpO2), or does it somehow attempt to estimate the other two factors that should be included in a RDI calculation (apneas/cessation of air flow or RERAs/arousals)? If so it would be interesting to hear if you consider estimated RDIs conservative or high.

Furthermore is there any way to get CSV export to include gathered data on pulse and SpO2?

Thanks!
