If you are talking about the data your Philips machine collects, it is not to worry.
I just checked some of the source documents on Onkor software.
The program is not able to collect data on actual centrals it really looks at clear airway apneas. (CA)
A formal sleep lab has all the equipment right there to detect and log central events when they occur.
A clear airway apnea means that your airway is open and not obstructed but you are not producing much airflow
from your lungs for *at least 10 seconds*
Your machine is not a ventilator so it just logs the event. Indeed it lacks the brute power needed to breathe for you.
Even though it might be blowing your brains out at times, it can't even blow up a balloon. But it can keep your airway tissues from collapsing. So...
If you can check the time series on that event and see how long the events are lasting then you might have some suspicion.
If the event lasts 15-30 seconds and only occurs a few times a night, it's most likely no big deal.
If it lasts a minute or more it may be of concern. (how long can you hold your breath?)
In order to detect a *true central event* more data is needed, oximetry and additional equipment to detect your chest expansion.
(are you straining to breathe? or not? Is oxygen saturation caving in to danger levels? or not?)
What can you do? If you have a logging pulse oximeter you can collect any desaturation events and see if they tie in with any long duration CA events. (30+ seconds or more)
Are these isolated events or in tight clusters one right after another.
Once you know these things you can THEN start to think about taking the data printouts to a Dr, or Pulmonary specialist.
The O2 is the biggie. No desats, no centrals. ok?
Since you are just starting out therapy you are mostly going to see all kinds of stuff coming and going
and your poor body is wondering what in hell is going on.
Why are you sending all this pressurized air down here??
Do not fear, but be vigilent instead.
