take shhs1-204774-nsrr.xml for example

from 53 to 82 seconds there is a hypopnea annotation while the patient is in awake sleepstage, which is quite confused.

there are many respiratory events annotation like this in the SHHS.

I agree, this is confusing. Our recommendation is to ignore events scored in wake. These were intended to be deleted/removed (since they are extraneous) during the scoring process, but may have been missed (particularly in older studies such as SHHS).

Thanks for using the site!
