One thing that I don't see mentioned here is that during studies they have found that the majority of treatment emergent central apneas(complex apnea) resolve with time. They usually say that by about 3 months after the start of xPAP treatment many(most) of people with treatment emergent apnea will see it diminish to a significantly lower level.
That is what happened to me. I was diagnosed with moderate OSA, but my first week with my machine my CAI was very high, approx. 25. A month later it was much lower, approx 3-4. It continued to go lower and settled at about 1 after 3-4 months.

Interesting, and gives me hope!  I was wondering why my followup is so far out (third week of May).  I guess it does take a long time to stabilize.

I did turn off EPR night before last.   Last night was good in the sense that I actually could stay in bed the whole night. my AHI was 9.33 last night, still lots of CAs.

Total time in apnea is higher with EPR off, but it's only been a couple of nights.
