    If you enter the OSA investigation route via an ENT, then sleep induced nasendoscopy isn't unusual. However, question marks remain whether induced sleep is the same a real sleep, perhaps the AHI isn't representative of real sleep.

    But it does help in evaluating the cause of the obstructions as this can be different in different people. Endoscopy like that is often done to see where they can operate best.

    An AHI of 130 (if it wasn't the total) is high.
