English translation:Spikes [in a graph] rising above the average value
Explanation:
Like you say, these spikes are measured against the average respiratory effort (I think, Q) to indicate obstructions in the airway or other possible causes. (?)

Explanation:
'Spikes above mean values', seems to fit, in a reading compared to a constant (Q), obtained empirically, trying to obtain a media of the overall behavior.
