The arousal index is incredibly signifigant. The effect on the cardio vascular system is pretty well documented too.
There are alot of ways to address arousals caused by airway obstruction, one of them is the "desat or arousal" definition of a hypopnea. I’m all for the definition…but the rules of using it are a different story , imo.
I also think the 92′ ASDA arousal publication was better.
