    Purpose: Autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure (auto-CPAP) devices not only titrate CPAP pressures but also measure residual respiratory events. The aim of the present study was to determine the accuracy of auto-CPAP-derived residual apnea-hypopnea index (AHI). Methods: We studied...
