[CPAP] Doctor says Central Apneas only occur in older people

Apnea isn't likely to kill you in short order unless your AHI gets really high. Presumably, you were a lot higher in AHI before CPAP.

Of course when you wake up gasping for air and hope you can either stop your own choking or call 911 (emergency # in North America) it's not all that reassuring. Especially when, as it was for me at the time, you are alone with nobody to help you. I know when it started happening to me that was what came to mind when I woke up - I'm going to die. Not a pleasant sensation.
