Incorrect Wording

JAMA. 2002;288(16):1985. doi:10.1001/jama.288.16.1985

In the Original Contribution entitled "Association of Sleep-Disordered Breathing, Sleep Apnea, and Hypertension in a Large Community-Based Study," published in the April 12, 2000, issue of THE JOURNAL (2000;283:1829-1836), there was incorrect wording in the abstract and in the "Methods" section. On page 1829 in the "Main Outcome Measures" section the sentence that read "(AHI, the average number of apneas plus hypopneas per hour of sleep, with hypopnea defined as a ≥30% reduction in airflow or thoracoabdominal excursion accompanied by a ≥4% drop in oxyhemoglobin saturation)," should have read "(AHI, the average number of apneas plus hypopneas per hour of sleep, with apnea defined as a cessation of airflow and hypopnea defined as a ≥30% reduction in airflow or thoracoabdominal excursion, both of which are accompanied by a ≥4% drop in oxyhemoglobin saturation)."
