Calling on the wizards!
Sleep study address was in post 3: No Central events during diagnostic (before 'PAP treatment) study.


Hi hopeful,

I think about a third of the time new 'PAPers get a lot of CA events during first weeks, and about half the time the CA events gradually reduce to an insignificant amount, within a couple months as we adapt to breathing against pressure.

Since you had no central events during diagnostic study, your odds are better than average that the CAs which have emerged from PAP treatment will resolve on their own within a month or two, especially if Max PS is kept fairly low.
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
