So I have to ask......... if I remember reading about human physiology correctly; it is Carbon Dioxide levels that trigger us to breathe.?
So except for Obstructive events, .......... it might seem that the central events, Apnea, etc perhaps caused by a number of reasons,
1. Brain is not sending the signal perhaps due to degration, damage due to trama, chemicals, old age or ?,
2. the signal not reaching the muscles that operate the lungs? ie the "wiring" that carries the signal........ or
3. that the "sending unit" that monitors the C02 level needs "to be fixed"
Is there any work or studies that have been done on the C02 aspect of Sleep Apnea?
Am I on track about the C02 triggering the breathing process?
I know this is a bit off topic, but it seems that the more we understand, the more likely we are to create and implement solutions.
