Could you, for the benefit of education, attach an Oscar graph of your OA's occurring when you are awake?
The fact is that I may have a lot of these false OA's. But it is not easy to be sure.

Thank you
Here's a night where I was awake and had a bunch of OAs while lying awake.

Yellow, high-lighted top chart is when I was awake. You can also tell by the lower, and volatile respiration rate.

Thanks Pugsy, good stuff. Great idea for a sticky, how to identify false events. Here's a couple examples of false events that I get flagged with several times every night. Wake up, take a deep breath and hold it while adjusting body position and go back to sleep.
