What is considered a myAir event? Why do myAir events differ? What does the events per hour mean? Is that the times I stop breathing?

myAir, Event

Events per hour means the number of breathing events—called apneas and hypopneas—you experience each hour. An apnea is defined as an event when air stops flowing to the lungs for 10 seconds or longer. A hypopnea is a partial blockage of the airway that lasts for 10 seconds or longer. Your CPAP machine notes the number of breathing events you have in each hour. This number can help measure how well your treatment is working.
