Hello, as in MESA hypopneas were scored according to different rules, I would like to confirm if in the xml annotation files each hypopnea (whether 50% or only 30-50% decrease in airflow) were scored if they were associated with a 3% desaturation and/or an arousal. Thanks,

Hello,

Both the AASM Alternative Hypopneas and the AASM Recommended Hypopneas did not require a 3% desaturation and/or arousal to be annotated. These events are marked independent of whether any associated desaturation were linked with the event.
