I sleep through the night without recurrent awakenings, does this mean I do not have OSA?

No. Often, the sleep disturbances caused by OSA are short and intermittent and are insufficient to fully rouse the affected person from sleep completely. These repeated short arousals are however enough to result in unrefreshing sleep and all the adverse health consequences described previously.
