[CPAP] Beyond ASV with Overlap Syndrome!
RE: Beyond ASV with Overlap Syndrome!
AHI of 20 or less is accepted as treated as a result at home 

What kind of nonsense is this?   Insurance companies re-writing medicine?  I feel incapacitated at numbers over 3.  At 7, I really was totally out of it.  At 20, I'd be effectively in a coma and bed bound.  It's utter rubbish, written, or floated by individuals who have never had apnea.  This kind of grade inflation is unacceptable...

Time to find another doctor...  This one is a clear fail.  Hope you find one soon, as you've been stretched out on this way too long.

The positive is I slept through the night for 4.x hours, so a lower pressure set certainly has some merit. Negative is high untreated AHI and not well rested. I know there can be a time period to get back to being well rested, even so the OSCAR results are not good IMO.

You might be a good candidate for EERS. The extra rebreathed CO2 can help some people with centrals, so that they can use a boring CPAP.

But it doesn't sound like your doctor is really at the leading edge of, well, anything.

Yep, the backup rate on the ASV is OK for the Centrals but I need another similar with timing controls, ti Min/Max, trigger, cycle... EERS may work but it'd not answer timing.

I've told the CPAP coordinator that since doc isn't listening I'm getting my charts and going elsewhere. She's trying to talk him into giving me what I asked but eh dunno if it goes well. So fire em DaveO is incoming.
