I asked why the HUGE difference in the results and he attributed it to sleeping in my own bed/more comfortable environment.
No, it's because they just aren't that accurate.
It showed the majority of my arousals in REM, but it rarely showed 'wake' from the arousal. I thought an arousal would take me out of REM and then I'd fall back asleep and basically start the sleep cycle Over? I could be wrong.
An arousal can just be three seconds of wake. An arousal can take you out of REM sleep, or you can go right back into REM sleep. Usually if you get kicked out of REM you will try to dive back into it....or not.
Wake doesn't show up on a hypnogram unless the wake segment of the 30 second epoch is more than 15 seconds, though it can be the full 30 seconds as well.
Fairly new here. Not sure if this reply notifies you or not.
Seems like it usually does, but not always.
