In my case, no doctor or anyone from the sleep study place ever talked to me about he report. I had to insist on receiving one and got it by mail. I googled all the terms. One of the manufacturers of CPAP equipment has a good explanatory page: https://www.sleepapnea.com/diagnosis/understanding-results

Thanks, I had seen this one before. I was looking for more information as to what the normal ranges were for the various readings.

I do this type analysis of any medical report by googling the terms. That can be tedious but I doubt anyone who has been to many years of medical school will put findings of any medical report in plain English; else why suffer through all the book learnin'???
