OSA by History, Inconclusive Oximetry (n = 22)*OSA by PSG/CRSS, Inconclusive Oximetry (n = 32)Oximetry Score 2 (n = 17)Oximetry Score 3 (n = 10)Oximetry Score 4 (n = 21)P Value
Major respiratory compromise (n [%])1 (5%)01 (6%)05 (24%).01

Any respiratory compromise (n [%])4 (18%)6 (19%)6 (35%)6 (60%)13 (62%).003
  • * Children with a normal/inconclusive oximetry in whom the PSG/CRSS was cancelled are in this group.

  • Children with a normal/inconclusive oximetry who went on to have a positive PSG/CRSS are in this group.
