Dear All,

Is there any result -report page for a patient whether he/she has apnea or not in SHHS files ? I need it to compare those with my analysis software result.

Thanks in advance

Hi turtility,

You could pull an AHI variable (using your preferred definition) from the SHHS dataset and use this as a stand-in for sleep apnea diagnostic criteria (e.g. 5-15 mild, >15 moderate, >30 severe). Here's a search to some SHHS AHI variables: https://sleepdata.org/datasets/shhs/variables?search=ahi_

These were research sleep studies, so we don't have reports/diagnoses, per se.

Mike
