CSA
Please bear with me . We have moved to the country and there is no chance of getting ADSL so we are using an iPad with a Donegal . Using the laptop is cost prohibitive.
I am using the software compatible with my ReSMart CPAP . I understood that my apnoeas were OSA but upon downloading to my laptop the figures were 1,12,19,10,1 one night CSA .
I cannot see a way of posting the data here.
Is the treatment for CSA the same as for OSA?

Thanks Lorraine

RE: CSA
Lorraine:

OSA is treated with positive pressure. CSA may be aggravated by pressure.
Most auto PAP machines do not increase pressure in response to a CA event.

If you have just started PAP therapy for OSA, you may initially see some CSA that's induced by pressure; that initial CSA may abate with time.
If it does not abate, then you have mixed aponea that is best treated by a machine known as an ASV (Auto Servo Ventilator.)

RE: CSA
Why I was curious was because of a diagnosis for muscle fatigue and SOB which was initially thought to be MG was given of Central Nervous System disorder and I wondered whether this was connected in any way . It is mainly the brain sending wrong messages to the body - an anolgy is a software problem in a computer to a hardware one

RE: CSA
You should also look at when the events are happening, there is what is referred to as "sleep/wake junk" that shows up as apneas when we are falling asleep or waking up. These are not "real" apneas

RE: CSA
My sleep doc once told me that people who have had long term untreated sleep apnea sometimes have a lower central ventilation drive.
This may explain why some people have pressure induced CSA when the begin PAP; but it abates with time as the central ventilation drive up-regulates.
