I would say my average ahi is 3-3.5. My cai avg is 2.5-3.0. Hyponea index avg is 1. Obstructive index .5
I've been using a chinatrap and my leak rates are pretty good. I feel like I'm as dialed in as I can get with this machine.
Regarding the ca's, I have about 25-30 of them scattered throughout the night, half are prob sleep junk lastingly under 15 seconds but the other half will have some 18-25 second ones. The only time they go down to like 1 index is if I take a Xanax/ativan some time in the evening. That's it. That's the only time my ca index will be 1 and not 2.5 or 3.
So my first question is I'm wondering if my ca's are just spontaneous arousals (I had a lot of these on my sleep study) that the xanax helps me sleep through. Is there anyway to tell by the flowrate graphs an arousal vs a central?
And also, if I am having 25-30 scattered but legit centrals throughout the night. Should that be treated? (I know it doesn't meet the 5 threshold but just wondering).
I have my required doctor compliance check up tomorrow so I'm curious about the centrals/arousals and what to talk about. I don't think I can dial in my machine anymore though. I think the settings are perfect.
