Thank you so much~
The problem is about how to calculate AHI using the annotation files of PSG in SHHS.
The definition of AHI should be (the total number of Apnea events and Hypopnean events)/total sleep time*60.
Using No.200155 in SHHS1 as an example, the total number of Apnea events and Hypopnean events is 172 (none occurs at the wake stage), and the total sleep time (slpprdp) shown in the file is 128min. 172/128*60=80.625>>ahi_a0h3=36.5 given by the dataset.
In my understanding, the Hypopnean events scored in the profusion file is at a SpO2 desaturation>=2%, and I know ahi_a0h3 is at a SpO2 desaturation>=3%. How can I classify the SpO2 desaturation of Hypopnean events in the profusion file? Is the line of "Desaturation" show the % of SpO2 desaturation? and is the row of SpO2 desaturation under the Hypopnean events show the corresponding SpO2 desaturation?
If so, I removed all the Hypopnean events with SpO2 desaturation lower than 2%, then there still 132 events remained. 132/128*60=62.8 still >> 36.5.
I really confused about this problem. I hope anyone could help me to solve it.
