Study finds night-to-night variability in home sleep apnea testing results for mild OSA

Patients with mild obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are more likely to exhibit short-term, night-to-night variability in their apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) during home sleep apnea testing (HSAT), according to a study in the June issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. According to the authors, higher night-to-night variability may increase the potential for misdiagnosis and misclassification of disease severity in mild OSA.
