The event counter counts the total number of events in the database. If more than one event group
was set to trigger events within the event history, the event counter also counts the event group totals.
If one or more events occur during the same Episode Time, the monitor combines them and displays
them as distinct events in one event episode, called a combi-event. The first event is the trigger event,
and the others are follow-up events. For example, if an apnea event is followed 40 seconds later by a
brady event, the brady event is not counted as a single event but as part of the apnea event.

combinations of these events are counted and classified by the event counter in the

associated with a desaturation.
