I was diagnosed with OSA about 10 years ago and used a ResMed Autoset. My Min. Pressure Setting was 4 and Max. Pressure Settings was 10. My recent home sleep study shows, I also developed Central Sleep Apnea(CSA) in addition to OSA. Here is some information from the home Sleep Study:
Respiratory Effort Index (REI) : 57
Central Apnea Index: 6
I am in the process of getting a new machine. Which make and model would be appropriate for me? Is it CPAP Auto, BiPAP auto or BiPAP ASV? Which machine records detailed data for tracking?
A central index of 6 is very borderline. You would need the advice of a doctor trained in sleep apnea treatment to prescribe the correct machine for you.
