I got my sleep study results back and the report stated:

Stage 1 Sleep: 0%
Stage 2 Sleep: 97.7%
Slow Wave: 0%
REM Sleep: 2.3% (only 1 REM period)

I had 7 hypopneas and no Apneas.
It says 0 RERA's but 27 Arousals. I dont know what a general "Arousal" is if it's not a RERA.

They say dreams happen in REM, but i think i start dreaming as soon as i fall asleep. I dream every night. I doubt that happens only during 2.3% of my sleep night.


This seems to not make any sense. Any body have advice on this?

it's an arousal that's *not* related to respiratory effort.

dreams are more common in REM, but you can dream in any sleep phase.

the fact that you remember dreaming every night is a bad sign, because the brain doesn't form memories while asleep, therefore, the only time you'll remember having a dream is if you are roused during, or immediately after a dream. if you sleep through them, they fade away very quickly.

What made your doctor recommend you a sleep study in the first place? Was it aroulsals, insomnia, snoring?
This could really narrow the possibilities and help you figure out what is going wrong in your sleep. Considering that this sleep study is trustworthy, you probably don't have OSA, but something isn't going well if you needed to make an exam.

When i had my first sleep study it we because of extreme fatigue, no motivation, tired.

Had blood tests, went to cardiologist (i had a heart attack a few years back so wanted to rule a heart issue out), and everything came back fine. Then i was researching sleep apnea and symptoms lined up pretty good. I recorded myself sleeping and i snored a lot. Bought a pulse oximeter to wear while i slept and it showed a decent amount of desaturations. AHI of about 4-6 depending the night. But then I read and watched video's about RERAs and they couldn't be picked up with the pulse oximeter. Went to pulmonologist who referred me over to have the sleep study.

The 27 arousals i believe are mostly RERA's that the person who scored my sleep test didn't score correctly. Atleast thats the impression i got from my sleep dr.
