RE: C Stokes Resp
I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, or for that matter that what you are showing is really Cheyne-Stokes Respiration. Could you show more on the timeline and auto scaled the flowrate Y axis? 
I have a particular interest as there is my graph of Cheyne-Stokes:

RE: C Stokes Resp
goodn, I see you posted a brief period of periodic breathing that Resmed flags as CSR. Let me assure you that is not CSR. In order to evaluate it, I'd like to see a screenshot zoomed out to 3-5 minutes which will show the variation of respiratory flow, and I'd really like to see the summary data and statistics in the left screen. Please read the wiki linked in my signature on how to Organize Your Oscar Charts, and use the screenshot F12 function rather than taking a picture of your screen.

dataq1, your pattern is closer to what we associate with CSR, and you have a high central index. You may want to start your own thread where we can focus on your issue separately from Goodn. There is a great deal that can be done to resolve this if it is typical of your therapy, but we need to discuss background health issues, particularly any cardiac or heart failure concerns, and take a look at your settings.

RE: C Stokes Resp
What I am asking is
Is this ‘true’ CS respirations- if so is it a firm of hypopnea that is amenable to modification by adjusting the settings on a CPAP machine or is it simply brain stem activity which is harmless

RE: C Stokes Resp
Goodn, your breathing is irregular but it does not have the characteristic waxing and waning of respiratory volume with a central apnea at the nadir which is diagnostic of CSR. In addition this is an isolated brief period of repeated CA events, which accounts for the respiratory volume oscillations. Depending on your settings, we may be able to identify the "trigger" for this and make some adjustments.

I had no intent to hijack this thread, just wanted @goodn to see a clean example of Cheyne-Stokes. 

As to starting another thread for my situation, I may in time. For the time being my pulmonologist says talk with my cardiologist, my cardiologist says he doesn't know enough about CSR so he is going to talk with the pulmonologist. In the meanwhile, I'm not alarmed about it as heart failure was already ruled out and the episodes of CSR are not recurring (3 nights out of 80).  So someday I might want some advice from the board.... but not yet. Thanks for asking
