The definition for hypopneas is consistent with the following clinical guidelines: (1) American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) 2007 Manual (2012 update) (recommended). Berry RB et al. 2012 (PubMed ID:23066376), and (2) American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) 2015 (recommended) [Berry RB et al. The AASM Manual for the Scoring of Sleep and Associated Events: Rules, Terminology and Technical Specifications, Version 2.2. American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Darien, IL, 2015.]

Study scored sleep/wake rather than with full sleep staging if there is not sufficient quality on EEG lead. Studies scored as sleep wake have all sleep stages scored using a default of Stage 2 and no arousals are scored.

Total Sleep Duration: the interval between sleep onset and sleep offset while the participant is asleep from polysomnography

Conventionally, this would be called total sleep time (TST) (i.e. total time spent in stage 1 or greater).
