CPAP Machine Choices - read this before you accept a new machine

Astraith, post a SleepyHead chart, and we can go over it. The terms we use like obstructive, central or mixed apnea are defined in the Wiki Definitions. http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...efinitions  And lots more information in the Beginner's Guide to Sleepyhead. http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...SleepyHead .  Mixed apnea is often called complex apnrea and is someone that has both central and obstructive apnea.  Central and complex apnea often require an adaptive servo ventilator (ASV) for treatment rather than CPAP.
