Central Apneas after Turbinate Surgery

Mode Vauto
EPAP min 9.0
PS 3.0
Max Pressure 20.0
Trigger sensitivity: High

This reduces the pressure and pressure support, and uses a sensitivity setting for trigger (the switch from EPAP to IPAP) that has worked for many of us to reduce CA events.

No worries Sleeprider!
I am sure you answer a lot of people and help them too.

So you want me to try these settings?

Hi Sleeprider,

Tried the recommended settings and had instant apneas when I went to fall asleep. Unfortunately, I forgot the SD card in my laptop and didn't get results from that night and I changed it midway through to get some sleep. I left the trigger where you suggested and I am uploading last nights data. Note: I have to trim by beard, as I had a long period of leaks.

Thanks!

RE: Central Apneas after Turbinate Surgery
Well, the trick is going to be to reduce PS to avoid centrals, and find a minimum EPAP that avoids obstructive events. If you do indeed have central or complex apnea, you will probably require a titration test that evaluates you for bilevel pressure and moves to ASV in the event you have centrals.

Hi Sleeprider,
I think I should keep the settings that I tried last night. They are in the attachment.
I didn't have any centrals last night, I believe that I got them so badly because my pressure was too high for me after the turbinate surgery. What do you think?

Thanks,
