Which derivative from overnight oximetry best predicts symptomatic response to nasal continuous positive airway pressure in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea?

Abstract:

The cost and inconvenience of polysomnography for the investigation of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) has led to the search for simpler and cheaper alternatives. These are usually compared to an apnoea/hypopnoea index (AHI) derived from oro-nasal airflow and ribcage/abdominal effort sensors. However, AHI is not a proven gold standard for the identification of clinically important OSA.
