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?
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.)
