4 nights on therapy and events are increasing?
#11
You had 20 centrals in the entire night and half a doz mixed in the study. If it was still like that it would be insignificant. It is a reasonable possibility that the centrals you are having now will settle down, it has only been 4 nights Smile if it still looks like it does now in a month --- then you really do need to discuss that ASV, because you do not want to continue forever with the current numbers... but I still think you should give it a month before deciding that.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

That time has come. Your study showed the likelihood that complex apnea might be a problem. Your machine data confirms that it in fact is a problem above acceptable levels. It might be possible to limit pressure, and play with EPR, but these are compromises to the best treatment for complex apnea, which is ASV.
Aww. Man. I was just getting used to this. It's been 6 nights. Do you think I should call the doc Or give it more time? I know.. You said the time has come.

I'll agree with the gist of Daria's post that this can settle down. It is marginal now with a CAI of around 8.7 over 9- hours you are having closer to 80 events over the night, and we don't know the duration of events. They appear short on the graphs posted, although a series of decreasing respiration and recovery breaths are occurring. Your residual CAI is pretty mild, and I should have not used such an alarming tone.

You have centrals indicated on your sleep study. The CPAP has resolved the OSA portion of your apnea. Six nights is not an adequate trial to see if the centrals will go away. Carry on and keep an eye on it. If you're feeling better, that is probably the biggest thing. You will be the best judge of whether you're feeling rested.

Nocturia!!! Ahhhh! No more sleepy time tea! No! And I had zero CA from midnight to about 3:30. Then I had a bunch. I have a new approach for tonight starting with No Tea! I also got some compressions socks for daytime only! And some melatonin instead of the tea. I also take .5 mg of lorazepam. Trying to wean off this... So here is to a good night!

Since Lorazepam works by depressing the Central Nervous System, it may be the culprit that is causing all or most of the centrals! Have you tried benedryl as a sub for the lorazepam??

Reading this prompted me to remember a previous discussion on Benedryl and contraindications. I know I can't take it due to Hi BP. Better safe than sorry. So this below is quoted from WebMD:


BENADRYL

Contraindications
Who should not take Benadryl?
Check with your physician if you have any of the following:

Conditions:

Increased Pressure in the Eye, Closed Angle Glaucoma, Chronic Difficulty having a Bowel Movement, High Blood Pressure, Stenosing Peptic Ulcer, Blockage of Urinary Bladder, Enlarged Prostate, Cannot Empty Bladder, Overactive Thyroid Gland

Allergies:

ANTIHISTAMINES ANTIHISTAMINES - ETHANOLAMINE
APNEABOARD - A great place to be if you're a hosehead!! Rolleyes

EVERY ACCOMPLISHMENT BEGINS WITH THE DECISION TO TRY!

My AHI minus CA = > 2.2
CAI = 12.6
My mask was leaky even though it said my leaks were acceptable.
Yea. I feel like shoe scrape. But too tired to muster it off of there.
I have an appointment with my GP tomorrow and will take time to call my specialist.

And I know that higher pressure causes centrals in some... But do you all think it's ok if I raise the minimum pressure to 5? My 90% is >11
