The following PSG parameters were recorded: the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) expressing the number of apnea and hypopnea episodes per 1 h of examination, the apnea index (AI) and hypopnea index (HI), reflecting the number of apnea and hypopnea episodes per 1 h, respectively.
The apnea-hypopnea index was 109.6 events/h with the longest apnea time 61.3 s and average apnea time 23.5 s.
Fifty patients with apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) values over 5 based on their PSG results were included in the study group.
RESULTS AND ANALYSIS: Apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) less than 5 was considered normal.
After 4 months of follow-up, at-home overnight polysomnography showed "a clear, significant treatment effect": the mean apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) was 6.7 in the active-treatment group, compared with 16.7 in the placebo group.
"Our data demonstrate that even modest elevations of apnea-hypopnea index scores in pregnancy are associated with cardiometabolic morbidity.
In adults, an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) of grea ter than or equal to 5 is the minimum criterion for establishing a SDB diagnosis, while severity is classified by the number of events per hour.
Patients with an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) greater than 30 had a 30 percent higher risk of developing diabetes than those with an AHI less than 5.
The apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) is an index of severity that combines apneas and hypopneas (slow or shallow breathing).
Inclusion criteria were: OSA, apnea-hypopnea index 10 or greater; control, apnea-hypopnea index less than 5.
Investigators rated 42 of them as having moderate to severe OSA based on an apnea-hypopnea index in excess of 5 events/hr.
(1) The syndrome is defined as an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) of 5 or more events per hour during a sleep polysomnogram, accompanied by either excessive daytime sleepiness or 2 of the following: choking or gasping during sleep, recurrent awakenings from sleep, daytime fatigue, and impaired concentration.
The sleep study, as measured by the apnea-hypopnea index, showed a positive trend (p=0.145) in the overall patient population.
