For what its worth I am a sleep doctor and I found these guidelines confusing.
The Spec sheets A and B are a link at the bottom of the document. Hope this helps. Also ZEE APPNEA ? Sleep Apnea Risk explains this somewhat.
Thanks for posting, I think the new guidelines will catch a lot of guys by surprise.
